Garnet-and-Diamond-Ring

People often combine two different kinds of precious or semi-precious gemstones altogether in one ring to create a beautiful and unique combination. Garnet and diamond ring is one of the examples. Diamond is popular as the white or colourless stone, and thus, when some people want to add another colour to the ring but cannot afford another colour of diamond, they tend to choose other colourful gemstones instead diamond. Even if it does not have the same durability like diamond, garnet is one of durable stones, with rate 7 to 7.5 on the hardness scale. Garnet is best known as reddish stone, even though it can be found in other different colours such as orange, yellow, green, brown, pink, violet and even black. All of them can make an attractive combination with white or colourless diamond. Garnet and Diamond Ring

Garnet belongs to one of precious gemstones in the world. The most beautiful and expensive gem in the world is a green garnet without any flaws, which is sometimes called a demantoid. However, it is softer than other kinds of garnet. That is why, a demantoid with bigger size is rarer, and sometimes, even much rarer than an emerald with the same size. Larger garnets are also hard to find, and if some can be found, they tend to be flawed, cracked or have poor colour. Garnet has fire and sparkle more than a diamond can show actually, however, the fire and the brilliance is masked by the colour of the garnet, and thus, when it is compared to white or colourless diamond, still below the diamond. However, the fire and the brilliance is one reason why people choose a garnet as a complement to their diamond ring. Garnet and Diamond Ring

Garnet comes in many different kinds of shapes and sizes, so it will not be difficult to you to choose what kind of shape and size for it when you want it to be the same shape and size of the diamond. The price of garnet depends on the variety, quality, and the size, but the price can range from $40 to $5000, usually you should pay more for a garnet over 10 carat size. You should be careful when you purchasing a garnet, especially make sure that it is really a garnet, since a garnet is commonly mistaken as other more expensive gemstones. A red garnet is usually mistaken for a ruby; a green garnet is usually mistaken for an emerald, while a yellow garnet is usually mistaken for a topaz. Garnet and Diamond Ring
