Garnet Rings, Suggestions For Gold And Silver Garnet Gem Rings
Garnet Gold Gemstone Ring
While most people think of red garnets when you talk about garnets, the gemstone is actually available in other colors too. This is the January birthstone and the good thing is that most of the garnets used in jewelry today are untreated. While some men feel that red rubies are a bit too bright and flashy for their jewelry, the deep saturated red color of garnets wins their approval. Putting it simply, red garnets are popular with ladies and men. Even the birghtest red garnet has a deep rich red color, never too bright. Some red garnets show clear hues of brown, while there is nothing wrong with such gems, most buyers do not like this color shade for their jewelry. If you had to talk about the price of red garnets, you will be pleased to know that the gems are affordable despite their red color and durability. The affordability of garnets does two good things for you, it makes it feasible for the gem to be used in silver garnet rings and sizes of upto 3 to 4 carats are not too hard to find. You should know that red gems have shown consistent demand levels for decades.
We just mentioned something about the durability of red garnet gems, do let us discuss some facts to support the claim. These gems have a hardness rating of 7 to 7.5, something that should be praised since the maximum hardness for gems is 10 and diamonds hold that position. The color of red garnets is stable, so you need not worry about the stone in your gold or silver garnet ring fading away, color stability is one of the important ingredients required to make longlasting jewelry. In the world of gem stones, most gems use some help from man to enhance their beauty. We refer to the various types of treatments that have been developed for gem stones. Your red garnet gem ring will be special, it would not have been treated in any way. The natural untreated color of this garnet makes it even more special.
There are few more colors that garnet is available in, hessonite garnet, spessartite garnet, demantoid garnet and even tsavorite garnet are some of these. Your garnet gemstone ring can include any of the above garnets, price will ofcourse make some of them more attrcative than others. Of all the above mentioned garnets, red garnets are the most attractive from the price perspective. It is also possible to get good quality red garnets in the 3 to 5 carat category. Hessonite garnet has a yellowish brown color, it is not very popular and can be a bit more expensive as compared to red garnets. The color range of hessonite garnets can range from dark honey to a brown with shades of yellow. Spessartite garnet is quite expensive, orange to red would the color range for this gem stone. If you are considering a spessartite garnet gem stone ring, look for a design that limits the gem size to around 2 carats. Larger sizes of spessartite can be expensive, in any case expect to find inclusions in most spessartite garnet stones. This gem stone can sometimes have a more intense red color tone, it is then referred to as Mandaring garnet. Demantoid garnet is a high priced green garnet, this gem has brilliant glitter and can sometimes have a speciality type of inclusion. These inclusions appear like a bunch of fine fibres and ideally originate at the bottom center of the stone. Gemological experts refer to these as 'horse tail inclusions' and place a premium on demantoid garnets with horse tail inclusions. A demantoid garnet gem ring should keep the gem size to around 1 to 1.5 carats, larger sizes can be very expensive. Tsavorite is another green garnet unlike demantoid, this gem generally does not show a yellowish shade. The green color of Tsavorite garnets is bright and lively, some people compare fine tsavorite garnet color to that of high quality Chrome Diopside. Luckily tsavorite is much harder and more durable as compared to tsavorite garnets. Once again, gem sizes of 0.75 carats to 1.5 carats should be the sizes to look for, bigger tsavorite garnets are expensive.
There is one very interesting thing about red garnets and you should keep this in mind when, choosing a gold or sterling silver garnet ring. These gems look awesome when set in classic antique style jewelry, artistic 925 silver garnet rings are a good example. The reliable and classic look of sterling silver actually enhances the appearance of such jewels. Silver tarnish is a natural occurence and will appear on all silver articles. Any form of plating done as an 'anti-tarnish' is a gimmick, this is because all plating on silver will come off after a while. Jewelers sometimes use rhodium and gold plating on silver to cover up flaws in the casting process. We have always maintained that well made 925 silver jewelry should best be left unplated. If you do this for your silver gem stone ring, the tarnish can be polished off by using recommended solutions or fabrics. At the same time, a slight tarnish left on your garnet gem stone ring will actually give a more classic appearance to the jewel.
Mens garnet rings need special mention here. Since the dimensions and ring size of most mens gem rings would be large, you can expect them to require gems in the 3 to 5 carat size range. Garnets as natural red stones are a good choice for men's rings. The equation between durability, color and price balances perfectly. You can get a strong and durable mens ring with red garnet in silver or gold. If you would like to combine red garnets with other gems, consider yellow citrine or even london blue topaz. Avoid bulging cabachon cut red garnets for mens rings, this is infact advisable for all gemstones. Gems that protrude out of the ring are more likely to get damaged through physical impact.
