vertabella :  I sold it to another lovely lady who as far as I know is enjoying it!

It was such an easy to wear (low profile, and snag free!) setting, but I still often felt the centre stone was a bit too big for me, especially being a round (it was 8mm/2 carat equivalent).

I also found my dream ring after years of keeping my eyes open  and so I sold a few things in part to help fund that purchase and that ring/set was one of the things to go.

To the previous poster who suggested it, rutile does not appear in diamonds. It’s likely gray because of a natural tint, a darkening cut, or inclusions. Also as a Public Service Announcement, trade names on gemstones can be virtually anything. The most appropriate is to just say the color and the stone – a “gray diamond” but someone could call it a “steel diamond” or something. “Salt and pepper” is usually reserved for diamonds with black carbon spots, but again, trade names aren’t regulated and can be whatever the seller/consumer wants. Things like padparadscha, Kasmir, Ceylon, and Burmese technically require a GIA certificate of origin report that traces the inclusions and chemical composition back to a specific location and period in time when these stones being found were exceptional in color, but sellers get away with these terms all the time because people don’t know better. That’s why “chocolate diamonds” are so much more popular than “brown diamonds.” If someone wants a “midnight sapphire” so dark it’s almost black, that’s fine, but understand that it is a trade name and that you’ll pay more for what is essentially a very low quality sapphire.
