Spessartite Garnet is a stone that doesn’t get much attention, but how can you not give this vibrant natural orange colour, the attention it deserves. 

Gem-quality stones of this orange colour are very rarely found and the deeper the hue of orange and brighter the stone, the rarer and more valuable they are.

This exquisite, fine example of a large stone, being 3.58ct has a glorious bright orange colour and fantastic clarity. Definitely a stone worth investing in. Set in a trilogy between two beautiful old European cut diamonds, this antique beauty dates back to the year 1915. If I was to invest in a piece that I love and it is sure to increase in value, this would be the one!

This period was a time of transition, from the empire gowns of the Edwardian Era and into the 1920s where the shorter, more free flowing flapper dresses with their dropped waists and flirty intentions. As a result the jewellery changed to compliment the latest fashion trends. While old cut gems were still being used, yellow gold's fashion was coming to an end and and white gold and platinum were taking over the jewellery industry creating long necklaces with tassels on the end (satouirs), line bracelets and elongated earrings to stand out against short cropped hair. Rings were perfectly symmetrical and often featured contrasting stones which really added to the whole new look of the “Jazz Age”.
