Glorious Garnet and Diamond Ring
Stylish, current, and just…magnificent. Sixteen (16) old mine cut diamonds, each placed in a cut down silver setting, furnish the perfect surround for a large cabochon garnet.
Styling of the shank is superb. The shoulders of the 18k yellow gold band are embellished with black enamel work and provide an elegant yet simple backdrop for the lushness of the garnet set into a pinched gold collet mount. The diamonds are resplendent--each weighing approximately .04 carats with a total diamond weight of more than .60 carats; their radiance a most splendid contrast against the deep bittersweet wine color of the cabochon.
This was a ring to remember a loved one who has passed at age 80. With its gleam and sparkle one can imagine the high style which went along with this token of remembrance – certainly from a grand family.
