Fall is officially here! Whether the weather has already turned a little chilly in your neck of the woods or the temperatures are still soaring, a piece of jewelry that features one of autumn’s top gemstones is a lovely way to embrace the new season. Over the next few blogs, we’ll be looking at several standout gemstone picks for fall, starting with garnet rings.
The garnet has long been admired for its deep red sparkle. It’s been used in adornments since the Bronze Age, and has been admired by diverse cultures the world over, including the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans. It has a timeless sense of glamour that’s especially fitting for the time of year when the leaves begin to display an array of warm hues.
The Garnet and Diamond Cocktail Ring in 14K White Gold is a striking pick for autumn as it surrounds a dazzling oval-shaped garnet, 10mm high and 8mm wide, with a border of glittering diamonds. A diamond-studded band adds additional sparkle to this undeniably glamorous style. This ring is a stunning example of the gorgeous contrast that is created by garnet and diamond rings, as the saturated red of the garnet is offset by colorless dazzle.
Rose gold gives an especially warm glow to garnet rings as they complement the rich red dazzle of the garnet with a slightly pinkish shine. The 14K Rose Gold Mozambique Garnet Gemstone Ring is a stunning example as it showcases a round 6.5mm round garnet in an eye-catching modern setting. This richly hued gem is surrounded by two sweeping arcs of channel-set diamonds, nearly a quarter carat in all. These 46 glittering stones rise up on each side of the center gem, hugging it like a collar of sparkle.
The Victorian Emerald-Cut Garnet Ring in 14K White Gold turns a 10mm-high emerald-cut garnet into a wearable work of art that adorns your finger with a taste of a bygone era. This bold yet feminine look surrounds this gemstone with a scalloped frame that’s adorned with meticulously carved flowers, bringing a taste of the Victorian Era to your look. This daring and elegant style is also available with a sterling silver setting as the Victorian Emerald-Cut Garnet Ring in .925 Sterling Silver.
The garnet may be the birthstone for the month of January, but it’s an especially striking pick this time of year. Its rich crimson glimmer is perfect for fall.
