No Hallmarks, Chinese symbol but tests as at least 18ct

Diamond content; approximately 2 x 0.25ct, 2 x 0.15ct, 2 x 0.1ct, 6 x 0.35ct, 3 x 0.5ct, 6 x 0.40ct. Measures total 7.5ct. As these diamond are unset I would estimate 7.00- 7.50ct weight conservatively.
The diamonds are all held in individual yellow gold claw settings.

The colour of the diamonds is tinted, there is a lemon yellow hue, I imagine exaccerbated by the yellow gold setting
