14kt Yellow Gold Oval Cabochon Garnet Ring (Vintage)
Some rings come across my desk and they are lovely but they don’t strike a chord with me deep in my belly. And then some I covet the moment I see them. There’s just something about them that resonates with me and it’s all I can do not to move them right into my own jewelry box (The Hubbs has tight watch on the jewelry box these days, so that’s harder done than said). When I first saw this cabochon garnet ring I was immediately smitten with it. I’ll tell you why below.
Why We Love It:
The cabochon (non-faceted) garnet is one of the deepest colored garnets I’ve ever seen. It’s blood red. And so smooth! Set in a simple double gold bezel it is the epitome of an every day ring. Something you could wear with jeans and t-shirt or your formal dress to a black-tie event. Yes, it really is that versatile.
The ring is crafted in 14kt gold (stamped 585 inside the shank) and holds an almandine garnet that’s cabochon cut and oval in shape at its center inside a simple gold double bezel. The stone itself measures 18mm x 12mm and we estimate it’s about 11.5cts. It also has a maker’s mark of “SC” inside the shank. We’re still researching that. The ring’s total measurement is 22mm tall by 20mm wide and it’s currently a size 7 US but could easily be sized up or down by our jeweler (see options and pricing above) or by yours and it weighs 8.04g inclusive.
If you’re looking for a ring to get you from day to night (or maybe vice versa but we won’t judge) or you just love the look of clean lines and a gorgeous stone, this could be the ring for you!
