Octagonal step cut garnet, a modern version of a classic style. The garnet is “step cut” or cut with rectangular facets that ascend the crown in steps. This cut is particularly popular to show off a gems color. The garnet is off set on the band with a small diamond accent on each side to give a bit more sparkle. The bezel center, angular band and bar set side diamonds all offer an updated look to this classic combination.
