This is a 14k ring with three round brilliant prong-set diamonds with the center stone looking like approx. .20 ct and the two surrounding diamonds to be .10ct for a total carat weight of .40ctw. The ring is textured with a nugget finish, but this is all 14k gold, and was a common technique used in jewelry in the 1970's. The jeweler Spitz is a chain jeweler and is still in business in Walnut Creek, California. This vintage 14k diamond men's ring has a current value of $260 to $350.00.
