The center stone of this ring is a Merelani Mint Garnet from the Merelani mines in Tanzania - it's light minty form of tsavorite garnet. These garnets are found only in one place in the world. Like all other garnets, merelani mint garnet is totally untreated (not heated either). I just love their color. The stone is approximately 4mm and weighs .3 ct.

The ring is 14K rose gold. It's relativly lightweight (a little under 2 grams), otherwise it would cost a lot more. But it was designed for me in CAD with a narrow but deeper shank for sturdiness, so the design is petite but not flimsy or cheap. (My thank you to Brandy from Belenki Girl Designs for the CAD work.)

The casting is done in recycled metals - my casting service is certified green.

The diamonds each weigh .007 cts and are thickly packed into the prong setting for extra sparkle (the closer they are together the more brilliance). There are 32 diamonds for a total diamond weight is .22 points. They are H color, SI1 quality. This is not extra fine quality but definitely a cut above commercial jewelry store quality. In other words, these diamonds have excellent brilliance, much better than my photos can capture. You'll be very happy.

The ring is a size 6 1/2. I can change the size for an extra $10. If you need more than one size up though, please let me know, I have to get a quote for the gold that needs to be added. Right now I am only allowing up to a size 8 in the listing variations.

Resizing fees will be billed via PayPal or Etsy listing. Sizing takes about a week (sometimes less).

CUSTOM ORDERS: I can make this ring in 14KT White, 14KT Yellow, 18 KT, and also 10K (but not 10 Pink). Prices for all 14K orders are the same, 18K is about $100 more, 10 about $80 less (I have to check exact quotes). I can also cast it in anti-tarnish recycled silver (argentium).

Other gems are an option, and this can vary the price. I have 3 more mint garnets that fit this ring. Then I'm out and right now I can't get more. My supplier has family right at the source in Tanzania, they are trying to get this color gem but so far no luck. For most semi-precious gems, the $499 is a good ball park figure.

Custom orders take about 3 weeks because I have to add in the casting time.

Alternative stones are emerald, tourmaline, tsavorite, and then of course lots of other gems.

This price is guaranteed until Valentine's Day. Then it will go up to $549.
