Joe’s Special Box – Volume 66

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and A Collector’s Things

Words from the “Joe Murawski” school of sales:

When looking for an engagement ring, women will undoubtedly say one (if not all) of these things:

  • “I don’t want a diamond that looks yellow.  If it’s white, I like it.  If it’s yellow, I don’t.”
  • ” I don’t want a diamond with visible marks or inclusions.”
  • “I don’t want a ring that look like everyone else’s.”

And after fifteen years and countless engagement sales, I can honestly say that Joe is right.  Buying a diamond ring really can be simple.  Follow these three guidelines and 99.9% of the time, you’ll find a winner.  

And what a winner this one is…  it’s absolute perfection from top to bottom.  The ring is hand-carved from platinum with a painstakingly crafted butterfly on each shoulder.  Twenty-four single cut diamonds are set around the sides and edges of the ring.  It sparkles from every angle.  Hundreds of miniscule platinum beads set off the design – this old world technique is known as milgrain.  The crowning glory of this early 1900’s gem is that center stone – a 1.05 carat Old European Cut diamond.  With high crown angles and a slightly open culet, this stone is dazzling.  Authentic and pristine, this charmer sells for $7500…  AND it fulfills all three of Joe’s rules.  You really can’t go wrong.

“You can go to a museum and look, or come to us and touch.”
