Before and After: Rhodolite Garnets and Purple Amethysts

Before and After: Rhodolite Garnets and Purple Amethysts

In early March, we attended the annual Bangkok Gem Fair to network and gain inspiration for new jewelry. One item on our list was a large quantity of Rhodolite Garnets, a rare type of garnet with a pinkish purple hue. We had been looking for 24 two-carat stones to make a companion for a client’s royal purple amethyst bracelet. The two bracelets layered together gave the client the big look she wanted. The stones exceeded our expectations, and we are excited to have this contact for future projects.

The Before photo shows the gems before they were set – flawless!  The After photo shows both bracelets, in 18k white gold, containing more than 50 carats of stones each.
