4.20 ct tw Garnet & Diamond Cut White Topaz Sterling Ring
Garnet Gorgeous, White Topaz NOT
Okay let me say I love garnet; my favorite color is a deep burgundy so whenever I find a rich garnet I’m thrilled. Now when I first saw this ring in the email preview I’ll be honest I was not sold on it, I could not tell from the picture if I liked it enough to chance that despite the garnet was pretty there was nothing that drew me to the white topaz from the email pictures. I made a note to take a look at the online premiere so I can tell if I liked it or not, now when I saw it during the first show I was so happy though disappointed because I liked what I saw but it sold out fast in my size and since it’s hard for me to find a good garnet I had to go on waitlist. My waitlist order got mixed up and it was a bit stressful but I figured it was a blessing since eventually when it was handled I got it at a different sell price, so I was happy with that. Though the second online showing of it didn’t impress me because I had taken the reviews into consideration but I could tell from the 2nd showing the issue with the White Topaz, when I got the ring the size 8 (my normal size) fit perfect but even though when I opened the box and was WOWed by the Garnet I frowned at the White Topaz it makes the ring look so cheap. I was not sure I wanted to spend so much on a Garnet ring from QVC when they had a perfect Garnet one last year that was only 50 dollars compared to this one. In normal light settings the White Topaz looks cheap almost like plastic it was raining that day and I found myself taking a flash light and shinning it on it over and over just to see the shine of the White Topaz, so I will say this under HIGH lighting at the right angle the White Topaz could pass as diamond accented as described. Under normal lighting it does nothing for the ring and I find myself looking at it under those circumstances and wishing I could have the White Topaz removed. I love the Garnet, all the garnets they are so beautiful, but I am not sure I want to pay so much for just gorgeous garnets, when the white topaz is such an awful accent to garnets. I haven’t decided if I am going to return it because I am conflicted because I do love the garnets and the design of the ring but I haven't decided if I am willing to pay so much for something I am not 100%, and the fact I would have to keep this ring under direct bright light to get the complete effect I was hoping for, which I only got in the garnet stones and nothing else..., if the ring could have had real diamond accents the confliction I have towards the price would probably be an easier decision and diamonds would have probably had the effect I was hoping for with the white topaz....I really wanted to love this ring, that's why I am even giving it a 3 star out of five, though the garnets easily get a 5.
Ok I have to amitt that I ordered the ring before I read any of the reviews. The only thing that I'm dissapointed in, is there is no matching pendents or earrings avalible that I could see (hey guy's can you fix that???). I just recieved my ring today and I find that the quality and color are outstanding even in the smaller stones. The red in all the garnets shine and sparkle like blazeing red stars and the white topaz look like fine daimond accents. I really would like to see matching pendents and earrings come avalible in the very very near future. That would make a very classy and elegent set that you could wear with anything.
Looks awesome stacked! Fabulous!
I first got the garnet and amethyst and was so thrilled so I knew that I had to have the citrine only because I have soooo much blue topaz. I actually like to stack 2 colors together!! The citrine and amethyst stacked together are AMAZING. It matches a pair of earrings I have perfectly. The color saturation is wonderful and I love the split shank design amd setting! Great sparkle in all colors and all are special in thier own right. I usually love big and bold designs so this is actually danity for me. But I would recommend getting multiple colors because you will not be disappointed!
I purchased this ring for my daughter's birthday. It was so beautiful on TV. I loved the design and while the center stone is beautiful, the accent stones are way too tiny and don't look like stones at all. They cheapen the look of the ring. It's too expensive to not have quality stones throughout.
Not Quite Right
The picture is lovely, but in person the ring wasn't quite what I expected. The center garnet didn't glow like other garnets that I own and the setting scratched the area between my fingers. I must admit that I thought the white topaz added nothing to the appeal. I had expected a little sparkle but instead they looked flat. While the design is nice, after seeing it in person I felt that it wasn't quite right for me.
THE JURY IS STILL OUT ON THIS ONE!
I thought I would love this ring but was not thrilled when I got it. I was hoping my thoughts would change but still not loving it. Not really sure what I don't like about it because I love the bridge design in diamonds. Maybe there is just too much Garnet. I have a strong feeling that this will be making its way back to Pennsylvania any day now.
I love this ring! I got it for my birthday and I think the cut is gorgeously sparkling. The size and color of the garnet are great, the design of the layers is unique. I have gotten so many compliments on this ring! My only concern is that I think it will be difficult to clean.
Don't wast your money! I work at a high end jewelry store & honestly can't always afford some pieces so I thought I'd give this a try. I really loved the design & had been wanting a garnet for a long time. The center stone is ok, stones underneath terrible & the white topaz cloudy. Just returned it!
I purchased the garnet stone ring. The garnet is beautiful, however the little stones underneath the main stone look like little plastic stones. Too much money not to be WOWED by the ring. I have looked at it daily for almost two weeks, decided it must go back. Maybe the other colors did not have the "plastic stones" look. Will have to look for another garnet ring. Really bummed! Gave it 4 stars because the main garnet stone is gorgeous!
Back To the Drawing Board!!
I was totally disappointed in this ring. As the other reviews the center garnet is pretty, but the pave' garnets look like a solid color their to dark and not appealing. The white topaz are dull and from above it just looks like sliver bar. The topaz are irritating on the sides to my fingers when I wore it all day long and I didnt get any compliments on it either. As much as I wanted to love it...I must return it..for the cost. I expected a better ring. Sorry :(
Not so stunning
I sent this Garnet/White Topaz ring back. I found the topaz made the ring look very cheap, they were too small, and did not complement this ring at all. This ring was just was not for me.
This is the most gorgeous ring I have ever seen.I will wear this ring every chance I get.
