Demantoid (from the Latin for “diamond-like”) is the name given to a rare green variety of Garnet. These gems were initially discovered in Western Russia in the 1880s, but their rarity meant that they were rarely used in jewelry. In the early 2000s Demantoids were found in Africa, and while they weren’t quite as saturated as their Russian siblings, they make up for it with large sizes at more reasonable prices. Our favorite cut for these is round, since it allows the gem to show off its extreme dispersion and brilliance.
Details: 14k white gold earrings with 1.00ctw round Namibian Demantoid garnets.
