FAB Vintage Sterling Silver Red Garnet Ring 10.2 Grams Size 8

Offered today is a vintage sterling silver ring set with gorgeous genuine garnet gemstones. This is a large ring, the top being oval in shape and measuring 1-1/8" in length down the finger and 3/4" side to side. There are 8 larger garnets arranged in pairs down the center of the ring, and smaller round cut garnets all around the outer edge. I did not realize until I checked the ring with a loupe that each of the large garnets is cut in a heart shape. Due to the number of gemstones and the design of the ring, it is not something that readily stands out. Nevertheless, I was delighted to make the discovery! These are beautiful garnets. They are true dark red, and sparkle like crazy. This ring is a size 8 and weighs 10.2 grams. It has a partial 925 hallmark inside the ring (the 9 is too light to read), but acid tests as sterling. It is in excellent vintage condition.
