Beautiful 10mm marquise shaped garnet is set in 14KT yellow gold. This would make a fantastic January birthstone ring since it is a durable, low-profile ring that can be worn daily!
Red was likely the first known color of garnet and is still the most prevalent. While its discovery is shrouded in the mists of time, it is believed the name for the most common red garnet, almandine, comes from a small city in Asia Minor called Alabanda. Alabanda was referenced in historic literature as both a gem site and as a gem cutting center.
Currently this ring is about size 6-1/2 but can be sized to fit.
