The Victoria Ring - Garnet Version
A rare malaia garnet sits at the center of this version of the victoria ring. This design was inspired by the early victorian times.
During this time period, coloured stones were favoured over diamonds and only recently have diamonds surpassed their status.
Malaia garnet is unusual in that it is a "hybrid" garnet, containing a mixture of the almandine, spessartine, and pyrope garnet varieties and typically comes from one location in the world.
The garnet in this ring is surrounded by single-cut melee diamonds that were chosen for their unique fire and scintillation properties.
Early variations of single cut diamonds have existed on the market since the 1600s and they are often used in very high end watches for their attractive and eye-catching sparkle.
You don't see them set into rings or other contemporary jewellery often as they are not easily sourced and come at a premium, but they were used in many antique pieces where they were cut by hand under candle light.
The usual wait time for this jewel to be completed is 3 weeks as it is bespoke and made to order.
