Edwardian 18ct Gold, Green Garnet & Diamond Three Stone Ring

51S
Rare Find 200 Admirers
Written by Olly Gerrish

A pretty 18ct gold ring that was made circa 1900-1910. It has been claw set with three green garnets with small bright diamonds in between. The proper name for green garnet is “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 as they are no longer mined. In the early 1900s they were a celebrated stone and items of jewellery were set with these beautiful stones. This ring is from that period and is as wearable today as it was then.
