Let's start with the luscious table cut garnet, the color of wine and so simply faceted. The 18k gold setting is the perfect place for this gorgeous stone to reside, the colors are so good together. The gold has elaborate engravings of feather plumes still visible on the top of the shoulders and edges but only teasing traces of engraving left in the individual panels of the band. I wish I knew what they were... it feels quite magical. This ring is so lovely to wear, the warm soft high carat gold and low profile bezel set gem are so comfortable it's one of those rings you forget your wearing until you catch a glimpse of it and fall in love all over again. Circa 1820-30.
Details.....Currently a size 6, we offer one free sizing, which we will do with the utmost care. The ring measures 11mm x 10.2mm at the gem set top, 4.7mm at the shoulder, and 3.5mm at the back. There is some light facet wear on the garnet.You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique jewels we consider it part of their charm.
