Edwardian 18ct Gold, Green Garnet & Diamond Cluster Ring

574N
Rare Find 857 Admirers
Written by Olly Gerrish

A beautiful 18ct gold ring that was made in Chester in 1904. It has been set with a green garnet. The proper name for this stone is a demantoid garnet. Although garnets have been known since ancient times, the demantoid variety was not discovered until 1868 in Russia’s western central Ural Mountains. Miners were immediately stunned by the highly refractive nature of the gem material. They began comparing it to diamond and referred to it as “demantoid”, from the French “demant” meaning diamond. The reason is obvious, with its high brilliance and dispersion. These bright apple green stones are comparatively rare and very expensive and were popular during the Edwardian period. The green garnet is surrounded by eleven small diamonds. The shoulders are split with scroll decoration that was typical of the early 1900s design. This ring would make a very special engagement ring.

Excellent experience from start to finish, I didn't have a clue what I was doing when looking at engagement rings but was very happy with my purchase. And it seemed to do the trick as she happily said yes :)
