1.50 ct Diamond Cluster Ring

Mama's RingThis ring has been in my family since the late 1970s, and belonged first to my aunt, and then to my mother. My mother recently gave me the ring to auction on eBay, to help me raise the money to publish a book and buy a few items that will help me with my music. It’s a gift that has a value to me far, far beyond the value of the ring itself. I’m humbled by my mother’s generosity. I’m also humbled that, years after her death, my aunt Loretta is still having a direct effect on my life.

The ring’s appraised value has recently been set at $2,100 by Dellinger’s Jewelry Shop in Kings Mountain, NC. Pictures do not do this ring justice. But if it helps, for all you diamond geeks out here, this is the technical information that I have;

  • 1.50ct
  • Color: H-I
  • Clarity: SI1-SI2-I1
  • Value: $2,100

I hope if anyone is in the market for a beautiful ring and would like to help out a struggling publisher and musician to boot, you’ll wander over to eBay and check out this auction.

UPDATE: So far the results have been underwhelming. I never expected to get top dollar out of the ring, but do people really think I’m going to let it go for nothing? So far the bids have been mostly insulting.
