1.3-Carat VVS1 Stone Visits More than One Lab: Dog Eats $16K Ring

Sep 04, 2017EMD Diamonds Overview of the Fancy Color Diamond Market

Everyone knows that diamonds are a girl's best friend, but it seems like dogs also want in on the action too… or at least that's the case for Bear, a 9-month old British dog. Most dogs like to chew on shoes, socks, furniture, but not Bear. He seemingly enjoys the finer things in life, including a $16,000 GIA-graded, brilliant-cut, 1.3-carat, G-color, VVS1-clarity diamond engagement ring, to be exact.

When Bear's owners, Charlie and his wife Carol, noticed the ring was missing and then saw her wedding rings’ accompanying ring box on the floor, they put 2 and 2 together and came up with the missing ring location. A trip to a vet surgeon, and there it was on the x-ray, her prized diamond.

What's interesting was what the x-ray proved by the absence of the diamond, itself. Because carbon appears translucent on an x-ray, it was confirmed to be a genuine natural diamond, ; whereas a cubic zirconia stone would have been visible inside the image.

And just in case you're wondering how the dog (and the ring) are doing… they're both fine. The ring passed naturally in her excrement, fully intact. And yes, Carol is happy to have it back on her finger - AFTER it was completely cleaned, of course!
