Rhodolite garnets feature in this delightful late 19th century pendant set with rose cut diamonds in high-carat yellow gold.

The magenta-hued stones are cut in diamond shapes that flash intensely as the light moves over them. And the diamonds add extra sparkle and life.

The handcrafted setting is barely visible from the front but a glance at the back shows a substantial structure that holds the elements securely in place.

Rhodolite garnets were first discovered in the 1880s in North Carolina. They usually have very good clarity – as here, adding to the overall bright appearance of this appealing piece.
