The garden was aglow with Summer light to-day. The last rays of the dying sun before the change of the season. Fall was in the air and the last flower that had yet to bloom finally decided that it was time. There will never be another chance, she thought!
And she had taken so long to decide-- a difficult everyday wait for the onlookers...finally, there she was. and no wonder the coquette had kept us waiting, and waiting. She just needed a little more time to appear in all its spendor! "Just look at me," she said. "Wasn't I worth the wait"?
And, indeed, she was!
A large six petals and one pistil flower in bloom, with the most luscious faceted garnets, all of which are set in a gorgeous 18K solid yellow gold basket -- sumptuous contrast between the deep red saturated natural garnet gems and the bright yellow of the open gallery whose weaved net let the light bounce on the underside of the garnets, making the gems sparkle and shine. Sublime she is!
This ring was crafted at the turn of the last century. And well crafted at that! With its massive weight, it has the feel and look of a superb statement ring. What's more, it is in excellent estate condition. the gems show no scratching nor chips. Their beautiful red saturation is as warm as the climate of its Mozambique origin. Any white or cloudy spots on the image is glare and/or photographic obstructions.
