Hypnotizing Tsavorite and Diamond Engagement Ring

Tsavorite, a rich green gem, was named by the president of Tiffany and Company in 1973 when it was introduced to North America. The color of a fine, saturated Emerald, it is a clearer stone, more radiant and much harder. Like Demantoid, yet more brilliant and more durable, it is a rare species of garnet. Tsavorite was discovered in obscure deposits in Africa. The central stone is this ring is an extraordinary clear emerald cut, approximately .70 cts. A luscious emerald green, it is embellished at its sides, with single cut white diamonds set in platinum tiers. Like steps, the diamonds lead to and emphasize the color and beauty of the Tsavorite. The diamonds weigh approximate .16 cts. The ring size is currently an 8 and can be sized. It measures 3/8 of an inch north to south and rises 1/4 inch from the finger. The shank, platinum and iridium bears the maker's mark and is struck with the platinum and iridium marks. Condition is superb. There is a hint of former sizing. We do not remove the stones to weigh them so as not to disturb the integrity of the ring.
