Vintage 14ct Yellow Gold & Green Tsavorite Garnet Gemstone Ring UK Size M (A1439)
A beautiful vintage ring in 14 carat gold having a shield shaped mount with blind filigree detail. The gold is a very rich tone and is indistinctly marked inside the band - the gold tests as 14 carat.
The stone is a round facet cut tsavorite garnet, the cut and mount make the colour appear to shift from a grassy green to a deep chrome green depending on the light and angle viewed. The gem cutter deliberately put little channels in the pavilion cuts which gives it more light play - under a microscope or loupe this really comes to life with a starburst effect visible. The tsavorite is round facet cut and just over 3 carats (and 9.25 mm diameter). It likely dates to the 1980's or 90's and was probably a custom commission, or small artisan piece.
