    A SENSATIONAL DIAMOND RING
    Set with a pear-shaped diamond, weighing approximately 30.02 carats, to the graduated vari-cut pink diamond hoop, ranging in color from intense pink to intense purplish pink, mounted in 18k rose gold and platinum, ring size 6
    With report 5101473256 dated 26 January 2009 from the Gemological Institute of America stating that the diamond is D color, internally flawless clarity, with excellent polish and excellent symmetry

    Accompanied by a supplemental letter 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 and the 105.60 carat Koh-i-noor, are examples of Type IIa
