    A DIAMOND RING, BY HARRY WINSTON
    Set with a rectangular-cut diamond, weighing approximately 12.64 carats, flanked on either side by a tapered baguette-cut diamond, ring size 8, mounted in platinum
    Signed Winston for Harry Winston
    Accompanied by report no. 1172591527 dated 20 April 2016 from the GIA Gemological Institute of America stating that the diamond is D color, VS2 clarity

    With a supplemental letter from the Gemological Institute of America stating that the diamond has been determined to be a Type IIa diamond. Type IIa diamonds are the most chemically pure type of diamond and often have exceptional optical transparency. Type IIa diamonds were first identified as originating from India (particularly from the Golconda region) but have since been recovered in all major diamond-producing regions of the world. Among famous gem diamonds, the 530.20 carat Cullinan I and the 105.60 carat Koh-i-noor, are examples of Type IIa
