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.
