Incredible Antique Cabochon Garnet 14ct

This bohemian beauty is such an amazing example of craftsmanship! The pierced metal work, the intricate designs, and engravings used to create this almost Damascus like lace work is the perfect accompanyment to this moody deep wine red garnet. This high cabochon cut garnet has such a deep hue and when the sun touches it she is just so juicy to behold!

She hold no hallmarks to help the mystery of her age or maker but I believe her to be likely a Victorian piece Acid tested to confirm 14ct.
Some internal inclusions and light wear to this natural stone which is very large for this type of pyrope garnet. Ring looks to have been resized at some point in her life.

Vintage Australian parti sapphire spray ring 9ct white gold

Phenomenonal parti sapphire ring with an abundance of Australian sapphires all pear cut to perfection. This 1970s piece is designed in the 1950s flower spray style to utilise the gorgeous sapphires coming out of Australia at the time! Parti sapphires first found popularity in the 1970s and were abundant however now there are fewer and much smaller and with that they have become much rarer and more sort aftet. So purchasing secondhand pieces like this is a great investment. The tiered 9ct white gold setting really showcases the colours of these stunning sapphire. Then the combinatiom of the little textured leaves and pear sapphires have such a lovely botanical feel and flow. What I most like is the balance this piece has, even though it's not symmetrical like so many rings. Hallmarked and acid tested 9ct with light wear to gems and gold.

I have made several purchases and I am never disappointed in the beautiful jewels or Sarah’s communication and friendliness. She is always happy to answer questions, provide more pictures and work with you on your jewellery goals. The only problem I’ve ever had at The Secret Compartment is deciding which ring I like best!

Sarah’s quality and exquisite taste in rings has me coming back for more and more, I can recommend Sarah with the highest confidence in regards to her service and bling rings

MJ

I am a repeat customer with five beautiful rings so far! Sarah is always so helpful and her customer service is phenomenal. The rings are always as perfect as described. Her love and care for the pieces shows through in her business. The packaging and wrapping when they arrive always make it such an experience. I recommend The Secret Compartment to anyone and everyone
