When I went to pick up this sweet blue garnet ring, after buying it at auction, the jewelry manager of the auction house came out to tell me its story. The woman who had consigned it, had shared it with her. You see this ring, had been her great grandmother’s engagement ring. And it has also served as the something old, borrowed and blue in my cousin’s wedding. Lots of sweet history here.
And what a pretty engagement ring it made. It’s got the color of a stunning sapphire, but it’s actually a blue garnet doublet. And those seed pearls? The stories they could tell! I wouldn’t recommend wearing it as a full-time engagement ring these days (pearls don’t make for good everyday rings – it was missing a pearl when we got it (see photo)) but it would make a sweet anniversary ring or right hand ring.
It’s 14kt rose gold and the doublet is about 1/2 ct in weight. It’s currently a size 5 US/J 1/2 but could easily be sized by my jeweler (for a fee – message me for details) or yours.
*The ring will be shipped (in the US) USPS Priority Mail. Should you want additional insurance to cover the full value of the ring, please message me prior to purchase.
