The incredible, deep brownish-orange hue of this stunning spessartite garnet glows with a radiance comparable to a sunset, placing it among the most beautiful and distinctive colored gemstones. Weighing approximately 11.00 carats, this striking oval-shaped brilliant-cut gemstone is accentuated by a dazzling halo of twelve nearly colorless white diamonds. Set in platinum.
The spessartite garnet derives its name from the city of Spessart in Bavaria, Germany, where it was discovered in the 1990s. The gem was originally favored only by a handful of jewelers and gemstone connoisseurs due to the rarity of specimens of gem quality, color and clarity. It quickly garnered the attention of the international market, as its intense orange coloration and excellent refractive rating make this jewel sparkle in even scant light conditions. Today, the uniquely brilliant stone is one of the most sought after in the world.Download the CertificationClick here to view a video of this item.
