Antique Edwardian Garnet Solitaire Ring 9k Gold

Silver bells chimed melodically around me as I strolled through the streets of London. Snow peppered the ground in large flakes, decorating the cobblestones with glitter and tiny white stars. It was unusually cold, and the Christmas trees were lit with colored lights, nutcracker decorations, silver tinsel, and dark red cranberries. I was meeting a long time supplier out for an evening of champagne and show and tell, and as we settled at a table near the fire in one of my favorite pubs, she opened a velvet box and I saw this ring glow like a deep rich fire. I don’t typically go speechless, but it was nearing Christmas, and miracles do happen. I walked back out into the snowy London streets wearing this garnet wrapped in gold, like an early present for my hand.

This Edwardian garnet ring was handcrafted in Birmingham, England in 1919. This gorgeous antique ring is made in 9 karat gold on a size 9.5 band. The round faceted garnet is a deep burgundy red, measuring 6.4 x 6.4 x 3.4 mm and weighing approximately 1 carat. It’s supported by a buttercup setting with beautifully hand engraved shoulders. The ring face measures 4.6 mm north to south and 13.1 mm across, it sits 2.4 mm off the finger and narrows to 2.6 mm at the back of the band. Fully hallmarked, it bears the mark for Birmingham, England as well as the gold purity marks, “9” and “.375”, the date letter, “u”.

This ring is a fabulous little bauble with a classic design, a solitaire stone, and just the right amount of London winter mystery.
