One great piece of jewelry is this platinum and 18K white gold necklace with white and yellow diamonds. Two pear-shaped diamonds are attached to the chain, which is set with white diamonds. The total weight of diamonds is 14.42 carats.
This is a beautiful ring with a green cushion-cut center diamond set in an 18K white gold setting and surrounded with white diamonds. The green diamond is 2.1 carats, and the white diamonds have a total weight of 3.75 carats.
The next piece is an 18K rose gold ring in the shape of a flower. Natural round-cut pink diamonds are set in rose gold with a small blue diamond at the center. This is an absolutely exquisite piece.
My other selection is this must-have cuff bracelet. The 14K white and rose gold setting is set with round brilliant-cut diamonds— all of those diamonds are 8.65 carats.
