Rhodolite garnets are among the crown jewels of the garnet family, with a gorgeous reddish-purple (or purplish-red) color, a remarkable brilliance, and, like many gems in the garnet family, crisp, sharp facet edges that enhance the glitter and brilliance. This ring has all these qualities, and is simply a wonderful find. The 2.03ct garnet sits atop a beautifully-crafted 18kt gold ring, created to display the gemstones on a slight angle, to add to the sense of movement. Ten accent diamonds, totaling about 0.12ct, are strategically placed so that they add light and sparkle on the underside of the garnet, making the whole setting a celebration of color and light! Just a fabulous ring that is a unique showstopper.
Total weight of this stunning ring is 6.5 grams. The center stone, rhodolite garnet, is faceted in an oval shape, and weighs approximately 2.03ct. (Weights and measurements estimated, as permitted by mounting). It possesses medium tone and saturation, and a rich, reddish-purple color. The ten accent diamonds weigh 0.12ct in all. At the widest point of the setting it is approximately 3/8", and the tapered shoulders, which start out grooved and become solid at the bottom, terminate at bottom with a width of about 1/8". The top of the garnet is about 1/4" above your finger. The mounting is solid 18kt gold, stamped and acid-tested. It is a size 5.5, and can be resized one or two sizes by your jeweler. It is in excellent condition.
This splendid ring will arrive in a fine quality presentation box.
