What we love about this ring. - Note - we can size this ring for you for a reasonable charge up or down. The design and the beautiful trillion cut. The luster is fantastic and shows off one of the rarest colors of Rhodolite Garnet, "Plum."
Plum color is very difficult to find in any gem, only sapphire has a plum color even close to this, though amethyst occasionally has a Plum like color but usually as a secondary hue. This color is highly desired by Americans, Europeans and especially Asians.
Also this a respectable 4+ cart gem by our estimates and a very nice trillion cut with about .20 ct. accent diamonds in a solid 14k white gold mounting of high quality that accentuates the very rare color and fabulous luster of the gem.
Unfortunately, the color is rarely found and when it is discovered, it usually sells to the high-end mounting houses very quickly and put into very expensive mountings that take the pricing sky high. This piece is in a high quality, but reasonably priced mounting of 14K white gold with .20 of diamonds. Usually this quality and size of Plum Garnet are placed in mountings that are so expensive they take even the smaller sizes 1-3 carats over the 4000.00 range.
I admit we have considered remounting it to raise the pricing to over 5000.00 but the mounting is so gorgeous as it is, we have decided to let it remain in a beautiful mounting that is a great bargain for someone wanting a very rare garnet one in one of the most beautiful colors, in untreated garnet.
This is the first plum color garnet we have obtained in years.
