Item Description

Red garnets (typically the pyrope species) have always been popular gems and perhaps are best known as the traditional birthstone for January. This robust pear cut has the classic and rich color of fine “rhodolite,” the varietal name for rose-pink to red gem pyrope. A very lively stone from Africa that is perfectly sized for a charming necklace or ring stone, at 2.31 carats in a finely balanced pear cut. (N)
