Spessartite Mandarin Garnet and Diamond Ring ~ 14 Karat White Gold
******RESERVED FOR AMY ******* Thank you Amy!
Rich and oh so rare....this one carat crystal clear, oval cut spessartite mandarin and diamond ring is on fire! This intense, neon orange colored garnet measures 6mm X 8mm.
The oval spessartite mandarin is set east/west in a hall marked and stamped 14 karat white gold mounting weighing 2.88 grams. The garnet is surrounded by 28 small diamonds that add additional spark to this rare garnet that was first discovered in the 1800's in Bavaria.
During the Crusade period, Crusaders set garnets into their armor believing their power would lead them to safety. In the middle-ages it was good luck to receive a garnet, and bad luck if you were the thief of one.
On the Moh's hardness scale this garnet is a 6.5-7.5 making it durable for every day wear. Garnet is the birthstone for January.
The ring is a size 6, and can be resized up or down 2 full sizes either direction by an experienced jeweler.
