Before the Holidays I did finish 2 ring orders with green Mali Garnets. Finally had time to work on the photos I took before sending them off.
Both rings were made with 5mm diameter Mali Garnets from the same lot and sent out before Christmas. For now I am out of Mali Garnets but looking at these finished rings I think I should get some more. They have a nice warm green hue and since they are garnets they are fairly durable and can be used for engagement rings as a colorful option.
The first garnet was set in a semi-bezel setting ring which brings out the color hue really nicely.
The second ring had a more rustic feel with a wood grain textured wide Halo around the center stone. It has a very earthy feel.
