Fabulous antique (circa 1900) garnet topped doublet in 10k yellow gold.  What is a garnet topped doublet?  This is a stone comprised mostly of paste/glass with a thin slice of garnet making up the table and part of the crown.  These stones were often intended to deceive buyers into thinking they were buying a true genuine stone (and they can still confuse less knowledgable gem lovers!), but these days we get to enjoy them as a tiny piece of gemological history as we still find examples like this set into antique pieces.  The benefit of having a garnet top to a stone was improved luster as garnet takes a good polish and is much more reflective than glass - which is why you can make out the ring of garnet part way down the crown.  The finish is just much better on the garnet - and has only been exacerbated with time and wear!  Stone shows wear commensurate with age under magnification.  Set into a lovely belcher ring setting.  

size 6, I don’t recommended sizing as the back of the shank has thinned

weight 1.8g

 

Please understand that almost everything I sell is either preloved, vintage or antique - it is highly unlikely that it will be in new condition.  Everything I sell is sold as is.  Gold may be scuffed, stones may show wear and be slightly loose at times, patina will often be left in tact.  I will endeavor to list any defects that are significant but understand I may miss something that you consider important.  Please ask any and all questions prior to purchase - I am always happy to discuss my pieces.

This item will ship fully insured with signature confirmation (within the USA).
