Diamond Ring on Display at Mexican Resort for Valentine’s Day

For the week of Valentine’s Day, a resort hotel in Los Cabos, Mexico, is displaying a heart-shaped 10.5-ct. yellow diamond ring that they say is worth $1.5 million. It is on view for its guests and for sale.

The ring is on display at Las Ventanas al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort, as part of a joint promotion with Q Diamonds International Boutique. So far no one has taken the high-priced romantic plunge.

Albert Gad, owner of Q Diamonds, bought the diamond in the rough from De Beers. Normally, yellow diamonds are cut in radiant shape, which often shows the most color. However, Gad said the color of the stone was so intense and unique, that he decided to take a risk and make it heart shaped.

The vivid yellow diamond has VS2 clarity and a GIA certificate. Christopher Designs created a one-of-a-kind setting that complements the stone: a ring of platinum and 22K yellow gold with 4.15 cts. of yellow and white diamonds.
