This fine rhodolite garnet is a true antique, cut approximately 100 years ago in a lovely old fashioned pear cut. Beautiful chunky facets, culet very charmingly off center, yet no window. Good polish, no scratches, nicks or other issues. Most likely never set.
I have acquired this beauty in a parcel of antique gems from a German jeweler‘s estate. They had been stowed away and probably forgotten for many decades.
Weight: 1.97 ct
Dimensions: 8.69 x 6.21 x 4.70 mm
Color: Juicy Red-Purple
Clarity: perfectly eye clean (one microscopic inclusion under table visible when you hold it up to your eye...)
In terms of color quality this garnet rivals fine “old mine“ Thai ruby and I bet it will often be mistaken for one. Definitely one of those gems that looks way more expensive than it is.
Would look fantastic as either a ring or pendant. How about a rich yellow or rose gold setting? I would be happy to offer a hand fabricated pendant or ring mounting at a great holiday package price :)
