18th Century Garnet & Diamond Three Stone Ring


A blood-red garnet is bookended by two pear-shaped rose cut diamonds whose rub-over settings show the heavy hand of the jeweler. Rather than seeing this as a flaw, I find this to be heartbreakingly sweet; it's the closest we get to time travel. Made just after the Revolutionary War.
