Demantoid garnet rings are not very common, the interesting thing is that many professional jewelers have never seen a real demantoid! In this report on demantoid rings we are going to discuss features of the gem and also make some suggestions for a demantoid ring. The best thing to do before you buy any gemstone ring is to learn about the gem, this might not be easy as most jewelers care more about selling and conveniently ignore the importance of educating buyers. To begin with here is the information related to demantoid. The gemstone belongs to the garnet family and is one of the green garnets available, tsavorite is the other green garnet. We did say that a demantoid ring is a jewel that you will not come across very often, here are the reasons for this. Demantoid is rare and it is expensive, so what you have is limited supply and restricted affordability. And if you thought that money can buy everything, here is another surprise - demantoid is generally found in small sizes. Let us put this size factor into perspective, a good quality demantoid garnet which is has a weight of just 2 carats, can be considered as 'large'.
A casual comparison between demantoid and rubies and sapphires gives some interesting observations. If you had a budget of around 25,000 U.S$ you might be able to purchase a fine ceylon sapphire gemstone ring with a 4 to 6 carat blue sapphire. But if you wanted to get a fine 6 carat demantoid garnet ring, and pitched in with a budget of 50,000 U.S$ - you might have to wait a lifetime to find the right gem. Gemstone experts and even seasoned gem buyers will tell you that, it is best to keep your expectations within limits when shopping for a demantoid ring.
One spectacular phenomenon that can be seen in demantoid garnets is worth mentioning. If you are well versed with gemological properties of gemstone, you would know why a diamond spits out that brilliant fire and glitter. Technically this is because diamonds have a high dispersion value. Simply put, it is the ability of the stone to split the light that enters it into various (rainbow) colors. Once these lights with different colors hit the facets inside the gem, they get reflected back and are thrown out from the top of the gem. This burst of colored light reaches the eye, and is what gives that stunning effect. So why are we praising diamonds for their fire when this report was supposed to be about, demantoid garnet rings. While the diamond is best known for it's high rate of dispersion, demantoid does that better than a diamond. The most amazing advantage of this burst of fire seen in demantoid is that, it can be experienced even in small demantoid stones - as small as 2.5mm to 3mm.
Here are some constructive suggestions, for those of you considering to buy a demantoid ring.
- Choose a design that needs a gem size of around 1 carat. The shapes generally for demantoid garnets are round and oval though, we have seen some pear shaped demantoid garnet rings in recent times. With some luck, you might be able to get a demantoid gem that spills little over a carat, check whether your budget can handle the price.
- If you thought that, a one carat demantoid gem is too small a size, take design inspirations from a diamond ring. More than 70% of the diamond rings sold each year, have a diamond size that is well below a half a carat. Remember that your demantoid ring, could have more than one demantoid gem. For example, a three stone demantoid garnet ring, can have a 5mm demantoid in the center flanked by a 3mm round demantoid on either side. If the ring size for your demantoid ring is below 7.5 (US), a single 5mm to 6mm gem would look terrific.
- Gemstone color is one factor that you will need to consider. While demantoid color, is generally described as green, you can expect some variations. The gemstone for your demantoid garnet ring should have a medium color, a small amount of yellow in the green will do no harm. A darker color shade will not allow the spectacular fire of the stone to show well. You might also want to know that, demantoid garnets can at times, show a strong color presence of yellow or even yellowish brown. In these gems, green seems to take the back seat.
- Choice of metal color, should not be a big debate when it comes to a demantoid garnet ring. Though we have not made too many silver demantoid garnet rings, the choice of silver should not pose many technical issues. For a platinum or gold demantoid ring, pink, white or yellow would be the available metal color options. If there are two gem colors that are least fussy about metal color, they are blue and green. Demantoid rings will look impressive in all metal colors, so all you need to consider is your personal preference.
- Demantoid garnets have a hardness of 6.5 - 7, this is sufficient to deliver a sturdy jewel but, you should follow general precautions like you would for any other jewel. Phycisal impact is not something that most gems can bear or like, make sure that your demantoid garnet ring does not hit against hard objects or surfaces. It is generally observed that, the care taken by jewelry buyers is directly proportional to the price of the jewel! This probably is the reason why, we do not come across damaged demantoid rings very often.
IMPORTANT: The design ideas that are shown below do not show the rings with the demantoid garnet gem option. All we intend to do is to suggest, concepts that will be suitable and reasonably priced when custom made with demantoid garnets. The rather steep price of demantoid and the rarity of larger demantoid gems has been considered. Suggestions are therefore made for ring concepts, where the gem size could be within the 5mm to 6mm range. If you would like us to custom make any of these rings or even your own designs, with gems of your choice, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work the details together.

With a thoroughly researched design, firm mounting for the center gem is ensured by placing the gem in a precisely dimensioned base. If you had to retain this exact design for your demantoid garnet ring, you would have those small diamonds on either side of the center stone. An interesting variation would be to leave the diamonds out and instead, provide some artistic design etched on the metal on either side.

3mm Multi Gemstone Ring
This is one of the most popular multi gemstone rings, and would also make a beautiful family birthstone ring. A gem size of 3mm is sufficient to see the fire and brilliance of demantoid garnets, your demantoid ring could have one or all of these gems replaced with demantoid. If you were looking for a multiple gem ring with fascinating gem colors try, blue sapphire, demantoid garnet, ruby and white sapphire. Just remember that your ring could have less than five gemstones too. If you choose to restrict the number of gems to just 3, an interesting option awaits you.

The options are many and your preference is what matters ... more.
3mm Round Gemstone Ring
Another gorgeous choice for a demantoid ring concept, the band width for this ring gives you two options. If you choose to have your demantoid gemstone ring with this concept, you can select a tapering band width or a uniform band width for the ring. The regular version of this ring has a tapering band width and this means that, the gems are set only on the front portion of the ring. This arrangement has some advantages, one of which is lower cost. Setting gems all around the band would obviously add to the gemstone cost for your demantoid ring. Another truth about a partially studded band is that, the ring is easier to care for. You could visualize that, a ring that has gems all around needs some care when you place your hands on a hard object. While demantoid is not a delicate gem, hitting the gem against a table or wall could affect the gem. We have suggested gem size of 3mm round if you wish to have this concept for your demantoid ring. The actual ring has blue sapphires which are 2.5mm round, you also have 1.5mm white diamonds on the top and bottom. If you wish to use 3mm round demantoid garnets, you really do not need to have the diamonds in the ring. One of the better options for a modestly priced demantoid garnet ring ... more.
Mens 4 Diamond Ring
We mentioned that large demantoid garnets are rare and expensive. So what if you need a mens demantoid gemstone ring with a broad and bold look. We will once again, take a suggestion from a diamond ring and recommend this concept for a men's demantoid garnet ring. You can see from the MAN56 image that, there are 4 round stones in this ring. Even a moderate gem size of 3mm would give the ring an impressive broad head height. The front width (head) of the ring would be around 10mm which is a whole centimeter. And if you wanted something even more bold and beautiful, try to budget for 4mm round demantoid gems for your mens demantoid ring. You could surely, combine different gems in the same ring - so demantoid might be only one of the four gemstones in your ring.
