Glowing jewel

Elegant vintage ring with pyrope garnet & diamonds in gold, around 1980

What glows and sparkles here is a fine quality pyrope garnet. This red gemstone has been chosen as the centerpiece of the piece of jewelry that found its way to us here in Berlin. Garnets are encountered in jewelry of all eras and on all continents. In late Roman times they were set in gold, and in the 19th century they were assembled in large numbers in Bohemia to form stars and necklaces. In the Rococo period, they were cut into flat tablets. And in the late 19th century, the public in Great Britain loved large cabochons of almandine. The oval faceted stone in this ring has a deep dark red radiance, but less garish than the red of ruby. The combination with the total of six white diamonds that the ring shows on its shoulders highlights the characteristics of the red gemstone in the best way. Thus, the color of the pyrope garnet is put in a beautiful, even gorgeous light. The ring itself is made of high karat gold and fits comfortably.
