Cluster rings are timeless, sophisticated and dramatic. Typically a large single centered stone is framed by a number of smaller gems. This 20th century example is of 14k white gold and showcases a natural almandine garnet of an estimated 1.75 carats. The richly colored oval faceted garnet is surrounded with a scalloped 14k white gold border saturated with eight (8) single cut diamonds of an estimated total .08 carats (H-I color; VS2-SI1 clarity) which alternate with small panels embellished with foliate designs. The lusciousness of the garnet and the sparkling glitter of the diamonds place this beauty in the category of a great value.
