This beautiful gemstone ring has one of the rarest and most sought-after gemstones of collectors – natural untreated Pyralspite Garnet. A very rare type of African Garnet. The exact chemical composition tested, using state of art microprobe analysis, tested as textbook Pyralspite Garnet, a hybrid garnet comprised of Pyrope, Almandine and Spessartite garnet. This garnet has a gorgeous color with a lot of sparkle. It's a deep ruby red indoors, but in the sunlight and candlelight, it is absolute fireworks of neon red sparks. Amazing gemstone. It's a beautifully custom cut, 16-sided fancy oval. We love this gorgeous gemstone’s color and blingy flash.
This is such a superb rare gemstone that we designed a setting that properly showcases it - with almost a carat and a half of colorless, sparkling diamonds in solid yellow 18K gold, double prongs with a ring of diamonds that go horizontally around the basket holding the gemstone for that extra one-of-a-kind rare gemstone designer look. Whether you wear this ring on your right or left hand, you will be stopped and people will ask you about it.
We design and manufacture our pieces... 'designed and made by women, for women'. Quality matters.
