This beautiful gemstone ring has one of the rarest and most sought-after gemstones – The emerald green Tsavorite Garnet. We love this gorgeous gemstone’s color and gemmy sparkle.  This is such a superb rare gemstone that it is placed in a setting that properly complements it - in both white and yellow gold with 2 larger (.16 ct) yellow diamonds at the shoulders.  The Tsavorite has a halo of clear, bright white diamonds and diamonds on the band. 
 
This gemstone is extremely rare as it is from the famous Tsavo region in Kenya.  Most Tsavorite garnets are less than one carat, and less saturated.  This is a rare find, and a very sought-after gemstone for collectors.  Saturation is important with colored gemstones, and this one is 4/5 (5/5 being the very best, deeply saturated).
 
Tsavorites are extremely rare and extremely expensive and make a perfect gemstone ring (they look like the most expensive emeralds - only harder).  Most Tsavorites are under 1 carat.  Typically, <1 ct to 2 cts sell for $1500/ct.   2 to 3 carat gemstones (rare) sell for $3000 - $4000/ct; above 3 cts to 5 carats sell for $5,000+ per carat, depending upon the saturation and clarity.
 
Garnets have a high dispersion and are hard gemstones, making them perfect every day or engagement rings.

More About these Rare Tsavorite Gemstones
Tsavorite (Saav-oh-rite) Garnet is much rarer than the rare Tanzanite, being a single-source gemstone.  Only a small amount of fine Tsavorite crystals are found each year and most of these are very small. Good sized (1-2 carat) fine stones are difficult to get and the 2+ carat fine Tsavorites are very rare indeed. This is definitely a precious stone of the caliber of which heirlooms are made.  People who know gemstones call the Tsavorite the "King of Green Gemstones" (yes - the Tsavorite is more prized than the Emerald by gemologists and collectors).  The Tsavorite has the same hardness as an Emerald, but is much less likely to fracture.  The colors are superb, ranging from light mint green to intense green.
 
Tsavorite was discovered in the 1960s and is only found in one region on the planet - East Africa. Tsavorite was originally found in the Tsavo National Park, on the border of southern Kenya and northern Tanzania.  This region is very difficult to get to and add to the equation poisonous snakes and lions everywhere - the mining is dangerous. 
 
We have a few of these beauties, purchased from the mines and gem brokers.  Our Tsavorites are the highest quality and sparkle like diamonds with perfect emerald green color!
