Estate Massive And Luminous Spessartite Garnet Cabochon In 14K Basket Setting
We believe this is a sleeper. A piece worth a great deal more than the asking price. Why?
A massive Spessartite Cabochon measuring 27mm x 20mm x 5.8mm as mounted. Approximately 30 Carats. No dyes, fillers, or infusions. Next, a consistent smoothness and evenness of color, with strong saturation of tone and hue. Next, it is mounted in a finely crafted 14K basket setting accented by a spiral twist and fine milgraining. Finally, the cabochon is finely finished with a gleaming high polish on front and back. This ring and this stone screams finery. We are told by the previous owner that this ring was a gift from an Aunt who collected fine jewelry and purchased this piece in the 1990s.
This ring is a 6.5 (6 1/2) and has a weight of 10.4 grams.
