Cluster Ring Garnet 12 Tanzanites 10kt Gold 1970s Engagement January Birthstone 10k
This is a lovely vintage Garnet and Tanzanite cluster ring made of 10kt gold.
The ring has at center an oval genuine Garnet measuring 9 mm by 7 mm and weighing approximately 1.25 carats.
The Garnet center is surrounded by a border of 12 genuine round, perfectly matched Tanzanites totaling over a carat, in a modern flare mounting made in the USA in the 1970s and hand set.
The Tanzanites and Garnet cluster ring is a size 5 which could be easily sized by any reputable jeweler.
Garnet is the birthstone for January and the Tanzanite is for December.
A lovely ring in near mint condition, except for the tiniest fleabite chip on the Garnet that was missed for 2 years before the ring was packed when we closed the bricks and mortar antique shop in 2002 and just found now when we were photographing it as it came out of the back of the safe, where it had been forgotten. Hence the price.
A beautiful bargain for someone.
