Art Deco Spessartite garnet and diamond ring

Here is a truly spectacular Art Deco Spessartite garnet and diamond ring that looks incredible on the finger and certainly makes a statement.
Garnets come in a range of colours from the more common deep red-burgundy colours, through to purple, greens and orange and the spessartite garnet is one of the more rarer variety of garnets that has a wonderful burnt orange-red colour.
This ring was hand made in 18ct yellow gold and platinum with the most extraordinary attention to detail that is captivating from all sides. Sitting proudly in the centre is the spessartite garnet that measures 9.62 carats and has been independently certified by Gem Studies Laboratory.
The detail in this ring is just incredible and only achievable by hand making with the advantage of the diamonds set into platinum. A wonderful property of platinum is that it allows for it to be drawn into a fine wire all the while being able to hold and support not just the ring but the diamonds as well.
With twenty four European cut diamonds surrounding the garnet, there are an additional five more set on each side. These diamonds total 1.36 carats and even the way they have been set into the side is so beautiful and elegant and shows the high quality of craftsmanship that went into making this ring.

Description

Art Deco Spessartite garnet and diamond ring. Rings from the Art Deco era of the 1920's to the 1940's have remained as popular today as when they were made. With fine attention to detail, there is nothing quite like a genuine Art Deco ring to adorn your finger.
A short history of the spessartite garnet.
Most people are aware of the deep rich burgundy colour of the more common pyrope garnet, however most people are not aware that garnets come in a large array of colours from purple to reds, oranges and green, indeed nearly all colour except for a true blue. Spessartite garnets fall into the more rarer of garnets and have a orange to orange-red colour colour. Thanks to the high refractive index, this makes the ring have an incredible look to it, with the refractive index being greater than that of rubies and much higher than citrine, making a spessartite garnet completely over shadow these stones when compared to side by side. The Spessartite garnet has long been regarded as one of the more rarer and valuable garnets, and when viewed in the sunlight, spessartite garnets seem to glow even brighter than one could even imagine. This particular spessartite garnet measures over 9 carats in weight and has been independently certified by Gem Studies Laboratory, Sydney.
