This is an 18k solid gold ring with a gorgeous pear-shaped tsavorite garnet. The design is based on an ancient Etruscan style with intricate twisted wire details. Tsavorite is a rare form of garnet that is difficult to find and has become very expensive (for more info see link below). This piece has a stunning medium green color that is bright and has no visible flaws or inclusions.
The ring at its widest point is approx. 3/8” wide (at the front – measured from top to bottom) and the band is approx. 3/16” wide at the back. (See photo with older U.S. dime for size/scale.)
