14K White and Yellow Gold Spessartite Garnet and Diamond Stud Earrings


SKU CEJ00008310

These bright and brilliant halo design earrings are each centered by a 1.00 carat oval shaped spessartite garnet, held within 4 yellow gold prongs. The garnets display a slightly reddish orange intensity, appearing very much like a fire opal. Each garnet is surrounded by fourteen round brilliant cut diamonds with treated yellow colour, providing a most interesting complimentary colour combination. The twenty-eight diamonds combine for a half carat and are all set into 14kt white gold. A long post with butterfly back is attached. Spessartite is a rare form of orange garnet often referred to as Mandarin Garnet for its vivid orange color. Pure orange Spessartite is not common; reddish, brownish or yellowish tints are frequent. Its most desirable color is a fiery-red with slight orange tints. Spessartite has an exceptionally high refractive index, giving cut Spessartite gemstones a special brilliance. These gems actually occur in a range of colors from yellowish orange to reddish orange and orange-red. The combination of vivid color and garnet's very high refractive index make spessartite garnet one of the most brilliant stones n the world of colored gems.
