This wonderful Victorian ring  boasts a trio of delicious pink garnets in triangular arrangement with a wonderfully ornate setting.   Three round pink garnets are held in a tri-corner arrangement, accompanied by petite accent diamonds across the face of this ring. It's a delightfully romantic menage-a-trois! All of the gemstones are held in open-back bezel settings with decorative prongs; all in a sunny 18k yellow gold that transitions to a pair of elegant openwork shoulders, and a sleek, simple shank.

Condition: The garnets have a moderately-saturated bright pink hue. All of the gemstones are sturdily-set, with open back settings, so light can easily enter and illuminate the stones. The gold is a high-quality 18k yellow, with precise and symmetrical openwork details. The shank is smooth and circular, with no distortion, for an easy and comfortable fit. There are some faint, typical signs of age wear, such as some darkening patina to the gold here and there, and some unevenness in the settings and smaller details; this is to be expected with antique and vintage pieces.
