This wonderful antique Garnet Cluster Ring is made from rare 8ct (or "333") Gold, and set with 14 dainty rose cut Garnets and a larger oval faceted centre. This unusual and collectible carat of Gold was used in Germany, Austria and Switzerland during the early twentieth century, circa 1910 to 1920, and this is where it would have been crafted all those years ago.
The ring features a pretty flower or cluster shape, which has been popular throughout history. But regardless of it's antique origin this ring still manages to look somewhat contemporary and (dare I say it?!) edgy.
The gorgeous rose cut facets of the Garnets catch the light in such a striking way, creating stark geometric areas of light and shadow. It's this fantastic attention to detail that makes us love antique jewellery isn't it?!
It has a comfortable 2mm Gold band and will make an eye-catching dress ring for any occasion.
This antique Garnet cluster ring is simple but characterful, pretty but not girly, and charmingly understated. If you love delicious reddy brown Garnets that look almost black in some light and deep Ruby in others, then this may be the ring for you.
