Men's Spessartite Garnet Ring

Surely not the usual dark gemstone men's ring, the MAN122 men's spessartite garnet ring symbolizes the modern man. A sparkling 9x7mm oval spessartite garnet gem adorns the center of this handsome ring. A rare variety of garnet, spessartite is sometimes referred to as spessartine. Available in a color spectrum that ranges from orange to a more saturated reddish orange, this gemstone has had its share of ins and outs in terms of availability. Namibia was the first source for spessartite, the gem soon became a sensation and this  resulted in a rapid increase in price. And then all of a sudden there was no spessartite in the markets, the Nambian spessartite was awesome but was not really abundant.A few years later another group of African nations claimed to have found spessartite deposits in their country, Tanzania, Madagascar and Nigeria started to supply moderate to good quality spessartite garnet gems. Experts are fine with the visible inclusions and fissures in these spessartine gems as they realize that, it is the way nature made them. Our recommendation would be to go for a slightly saturated gem color in your spessartite men's ring. The color shown in the MAN122 ring is fine as, it reveals the color and sparkle of the gem and removes the focus from the internal inclusions. A slight dash of red to the orange is welcome but, a strong red hue makes you feel that you would be better off with a red garnet gem!

Kaisilver takes great pride in introducing fascinating jewels to style conscious buyers, this gold or 925 silver men's spessartite garnet ring has been crafted with excellent workmanship and custom cut gems. Beginning with a design that is inspired by durability and style and on to, the carefully picked rough piece of spessartite that is immaculately custom cut, skilled artisans create each ring with complete dedication and passion. Most us are used too seeing or wearing men's gemstone rings with gems that are dark and often opaque - blue lapis, agate, onyx, dark blue sapphire, deep red garnet, smoky quartz etc are examples. It is therefore expected that the MAN122 men's spessartite garnet ring will draw a lot of attention but, for the knowledgeable eye the gemstone holds excitement and awe since, it is truly rare and stunning. A quick note about spessartine (spessartite) being worn as the birthstone for January. In the early days when the concept of zodiac based and month based birthstones took shape, no one really expected to find garnets in any color but red. You therefore find red garnet as the most popular garnet to celebrate the month of January. In our opinion, increased knowledge and scientific testing can now be relied upon - all varieties of garnet should come within the scope of January birthstones. 

The diamonds around the center oval spessartite gemstone add glitter but, some of you might wonder whether the sparkling spessartite needs their presence at all. Just keep in mind that like all other Kai Silver jewelry, this spessartite gents ring is also fully custom made, you can request for design and gem modifications of your choice. You could for example, request that your men's gold or sterling silver ring be set with white sapphires instead of diamonds. Many true gem lovers adore natural gems of all types and colors but, are not particularly fond of diamonds. Switching white sapphires for the diamonds in your spessartine garnet ring, will also moderate the price tag of the jewel - the price tables presented below will give you a clearer indication of costs. Another interesting variation would be to request for a gem size increase to 10x8mm instead of the 9x7mm option, leave out the diamonds and the price difference would not be very much. These are details that we suggest you discuss with our support team, there is no obligation to make a purchase from us so do make sure that you explore all your preferences and ideas.
