Antique Demantoid Garnet Five Stone Ring
A striking ring featuring featuring 5 fabulous graduated oval demantoid garnets, often referred to as 'green garnet'. The ring was made in 1911, at the end of the Edwardian period and not long before the outbreak of the First World War. Demantoid garnets exhibit a really bright lustre, so in the light they will really shine. They are brittle stones, and you will notice abraded facet edges on the stones if you look closely. This is entirely expected on demantoid garnets that have been worn for 110 years. Several of these garnets show 'horsetail inclusions', suggesting they came from the Ural Mountains in Russia. This is not only a collector's piece but it's also a beautiful example of antique jewellery.
