Featured in this lot is this 3.09 carat trillion tanzanite diamond and 18k white gold ring with GGA paperwork. The ring features a wonderfully and professionally crafted 18k white gold construction that is marked 'Oscar Friedman' and is marked '18k' next to the hallmark and is marked 'TA 3.09ct and D 0.80cts.'

Tanzanite is a very rare precious gemstone that is only found in the Usumburu Mountains that border the Umba Valley of northern Tanzania. It was originally discovered in 1967 by Tiffany & Company, who named the stone Tanzanite. This example is unique due to its exceptional pleochroism (an optical phenomenon in which a stone has different colors when observed at different angles). The piece comes complete with GGA(GemAssure Gemological Appraisals, GGA Appraisal Number#: GGA061488 and trace number: RN033031) report and appraisal confirming the above info and giving a total value of $12,630.00. The ring size is US 6 1/2.
