Sometimes less is more, and that's certainly the case with this Garnet Simplicity Ring. Nothing extravagant, nothing ostentatious. Just the simple, pure beauty of a wine red garnet cabochon, set in sterling silver.
In addition to being a lovely ring to wear on its own, the Garnet Simplicity Ring is also an excellent choice for wearing as a stack ring. Its uncluttered appearance makes it a perfect style for a casual mix-and-match approach. When it comes to silver rings, I think it's safe to say: the more the merrier!
The Garnet Simplicity Ring is made of sterling silver, set with a genuine garnet cabochon. It measures a bit over 1/4" at its widest point. This ring is available in sizes 4-10, whole sizes only.
What is a "cabochon"? Unlike a facetted gemstone, which has been cut to have multiple flat surfaces, giving it a sparkling appearance, a gem that is cut "en cabochon" is smoothly domed on top, and has a flat base. Instead of flashes of brilliance, such as a facetted stone would give, a cabochon has a steadier, more consistent shine.
How should I care for my garnet jewelry? Garnet is actually fairly trouble-free when used in jewelry. It is a relatively tough stone, and not likely to be damaged by day to day wear. If it gets dirty, simply wash it with warm soapy water. Use a soft cloth to polish the silver, and you're good to go!
How can I be sure this is really sterling silver? All sterling silver jewelry is marked with ".925" somewhere on the piece, to indicate that it is made from a specific alloy that is 92.5% silver, with other metals added to make it stronger and more durable. In this ring, the stamp is on the inside of the band.
Why is there no metal underneath the garnet cabochon? An open-back setting like this allows more light to pass through the gem, enhancing its beauty.
A review by Willow
for Silver Garnet Simplicity Ring
I bought this as a gift for my mother in law, and she loved it so much she decided to wear it as her wedding ring! I am so impressed with the quality of your work with each purchase we make. She said it felt so good, like she wasn't even wearing a ring. You guys continue to amaze, thank you!
