.25 – .33 ? take it into a jewelers and they can measure the mm and can estimate it for you.

I have .27 half moons on my ring and they look about that size so I would guess .25

Hi @labossanova: First & Foremost I see this is your DEBUT post on WBee… so a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

What you have there is a late 1970s early 1980s Interlocking Bridal Set.

Here are some tools that can help you estimate the size of the Feature Stone

PHOTO # 1 – Finger Coverage (Percentages) for Diamonds 0.40 to 4 Carats

PHOTO # 2 – Diamond Sizing (mm) from 0.01 to 3 Carats

PHOTO # 3 – Diamond Sizing (mm) from 0.25 to 5 Carats

Hope this helps,

My moms ering to my dad looked similar in size to that and it was .13. It’s so hard to tell. You could try measuring it and using a conversion chart for round stones

@labossanova:  Congratulations on your engagement. There is SO much you can do with a round diamond…really, your possibilities are endless! I have a diamond about that size myself. I think it would get lost in a halo.I think you’d do better to have a setting that showcases the stone, especially since its got sentimental meaning. Maybe something like this:

To @labossanova:  Absolutely, lots of Brides here on WBee, have Rings / Diamonds that have been handed down to them from Loved Ones (Mothers, Grandmothers, etc)

They are typically called here on WBee “Heirloom” Rings or “Heirloom Diamonds” (when just the stone was utilized)

I have a similar ring to the one you have from your Mother (I am an Encore Bride, and Older) my plan is to someday give it one of the kids to use in some meaningful way (their choice)

Lol, lots of gold in these old rings… they are most definitely worth something just on that alone.

Hope this helps

The stone is likely under .2, but take it to a jeweler who can give you a more accurate estimate. I agree that the setting, even if you are not keeping it, is likely quite heavy and worth something. You could either use the scrap value toward a new setting, or you could remove the stone to put into a new setting and keep the original setting (in case you ever want it or want to be able to refer to it or offer it to future family members).

While I personally love the set you have (but I am older and I love retro things) there is a good amount of gold there. If you want, you could sell the gold and have that diamond (which I estimate is between .2-.25 ct) set in a lovely halo setting. It would give the diamond some “wow” and it would be the best of both worlds.

Super Congrats on the engagement!!!!

Yep, great idea!
