Description

This round simulated red garnet features a deep, wine-red color and facets that catch and reflect the light. Use it by itself for simple earring or ring designs, or highlight the vibrant color by pairing it with contrasting-color stones in a pendant or brooch for a multicolor look. This simulated garnet is made with lab-created corundum. Simulated garnet allows you to offer customers the color and characteristics of natural garnet at a lower price point. Garnet is the birthstone for January.

Round-cut gemstones are highly popular and the most commonly available. Rio round gemstones are calibrated for size and hand inspected to ensure maximum attractiveness.
