$295.00Ask a question
Gorgeous 14K gold and rhodolite garnet ring would make the most thoughtful and beautiful gift for someone special! It would also be an enchanting engagement ring, with its shimmering pinkish red rosé wine colored solitaire stone.
Shimmery & clear deep rose pink pyrope garnet, known as a rhodolite garnet, is free of visible inclusions. Finger size is 5-3/4 (could almost certainly be resized within reason by a reputable jeweler). Emerald cut stone is about 5 x 7mm. Beautiful setting is 14 karat yellow gold with white gold shoulder accents. There is even lovely detailing on the shank. Marked inside "585" (14kt can also be expressed as .585), it weighs 3.4 grams. This ring was purchased new in 1983 & is in wonderful vintage condition.
The white heart-shaped ring box shown is NOT included.
The term garnet comes from the Phoenician term for pomegranate. In Greek mythology, a pomegranate is referenced as a gift of love and is associated with eternity. Garnet is traditionally given for the 19th anniversary of marriage. It may also be used as a gift for two-year and six-year anniversary. Garnet may be given to a beloved before embarking on a trip, as it is believed to heal the broken bonds of lovers. The Koran holds that the garnet illuminates the Fourth Heaven of the Moslems. It is also the birthstone for January.

It is the buyer's responsibility to provide their correct shipping address! I ship to the address given by Etsy or PayPal. Orders of $250 or more may require signature confirmation (may be required on other orders upon seller's discretion).
Please check shop announcement for shipping delay info. All items are as packaged as carefully as possible - I want things to arrive to you in the same condition in which they left me. I do often use recycled packaging, but pack to hold up to heavy handling & inclement weather.
***INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is available on all items - Just Convo me for a quote, if not already listed!*** I'm happy to ship internationally. Please note, however, that veraviola is not responsible for any VAT/Customs fees that may be related to to your order nor will we help you in illegally circumventing these fees if they are applicable to you. Falsifying customs declarations or having an item marked as "gift" in order to avoid customs fees is classified as Mail Fraud and is a felony.
As veraviola sells almost exclusively vintage & antique items, it is likely nothing will be "like new." I strive to mention any wear, soiling or flaws. However, since condition is often subjective, I will also do my best to provide very detailed photos for your examination. But please contact me with any problems or concerns ~ I do want your experience with Vera Viola to be memorable in a good way!
Jewelry is sold on an 'as is' basis, so please ask any questions before purchasing. I provide multiple photos and a detailed description.
Please convo me immediately with your reason if you are wanting to return any purchase. Buyer is responsible for return postage. The item would need to be shipped via a tracked, insured method AND received back by me in its original condition and original packaging within 14 days of the transaction (domestic orders). If these conditions are met, I will then refund the payment (less the original shipping charge) - the exception being layaways (please see layaway policy in the "additional information" section).
While my home is smoke & pet free, please remember that the items I sell lived somewhere else for many years before they came home with me! Also, as a rule, I generally just dust off the items and send them on their way. I do not clean, polish or scour away sticker residue. I leave that to the new buyer.
