Superb Mandarin Spessartite Garnet (2.95ct)

A gemstone you must see in person to fully appreciate – not your average orange stone!


“So long as you’re not feeling tight, a Spessartite might be the answer”  –  Chris Ball (after a long day)

This eye-clean Mandarin Spessartite Garnet has been Brilliant Cut, taking full advantage of its high refractive Index (level of sparkle) and primeval molten glow.

The depth of orange is an important factor when considering which Spessartite to choose. They range from Satsuma to Blood Grange – this stone sits in the middle, a definite mandarin as the name suggests.

8.20mm in diameter & 5.77mm from base to table.

Deep in lustre and in cut, this stone packs a persimmon coloured punch!

We feel this Spessartite Garnet is the perfect engagement solitaire, which Chris would claw set in our hand-forged ‘Sunny’ Yellow 18ct Gold

Of course the design is up to you – you can go warmer if you wish!

Such vitreous stones are hard to come by and Mandarin Spessartite Garnets of this calibre are currently increasing in their desirability.
