Dramatic Mid Century Garnet Ring
Bold and powerful, this ring feels like it belongs on the kind of hand that opens doors. A deep red garnet soaks up and absorbs the light, letting little pass through, like an old vine Syrah, while the rich yellow gold bears all the scuffs of a statement ring made everyday. While a chunky signet-style ring set with a major cabochon gemstone has historically been a style reserved for men, we love the boost of confidence it can lend anyone.
Good vintage condition with moderate wear in line with age and use, including patina to gold, scuffs to cabochon surface, and a large chip in backside of stone (not noticeable when worn).
