    Just for fun, let’s read Evine’s description :coffeenewspaper: for what you’re getting and why you should buy this ring:

    With a cascade of warm color, this waterfall cluster of rose garnets is so precious, you can’t help but want to add them to your jewelry box. A solid mix of pear, marquise, oval and round cut garnets add up to nearly 7 carats which gives this ring a large stone presence.

    Two-tone scrollwork decorates along the side gallery, as prong settings gather the garnets into an elongated top. Using power in numbers, this ring’s gemstones deliver a radiant rush of rosy resplendence.

    :rolleyes:

    Ok, then. So here’s what I think.

    I love the color of this garnet, which is usually called rhodolite garnet. Nearly 7 carats of it is huge, and you can see it’s nearly knuckle to knuckle: 

    I don’t know for certain, but I suspect like other garnets, rhodolite garnets tend to be small, at most around a carat or two, so they’re very common in clusters like this.

    The key to clusters, I think, is the balance between metal and stone. I like that this is rose colored instead of white metal, but I wish the whole ring was rose tone. The prong color goes nicely with the tones of rhodolite garnet.

    And January Babies can claim this as their birthstone!!

    When you have rings this big, there are two main considerations in my experience: how likely it is to spin and comfort.

    Squared shanks usually prevent spinning, but this one probably doesn’t need it because of the size of the top relative to the band:

    And this one has the undergallery:

    This ring will feel good on. And rhodolite garnet sometimes shifts color ever so slightly, making it one of my favorites.

    I only wish the marquis had more prongs on them because they’re the shapes I lose most often, but the ones that are on there look substantial.
