Tell me more...
An absolutely incredible 18ct gold half hoop ring 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.
This is a striking ring featuring an unusual and collectable gemstone. 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 are 110 years old and worn on the hand.
Several of these garnets show 'horsetail inclusions', suggesting they came from the Ural Mountains in Russia. This is not only a collectors piece but it's also a beautiful example of antique jewellery. It's supplied in our recycled kraft ring box along with our tailored gemstone care card.

Gemstones cannot be accurately graded or weighed when set in jewellery so all carat weights, colour grades and clarity grades are our best estimates. Metals and stones are checked for authenticity, and any treatments disclosed.
Your jewellery will arrive in a display box made from recycled card. We only package using recycled materials, and we think this compliments your ethical vintage purchase perfectly.
A written valuation is provided for all individual jewellery pieces priced at £1000 or more.
