Very few rings can decorate a finger like this garnet and citrine ring by Ambica. The pear cut garnet and the four citrines on the sterling silver ring's shoulders resemble a tiara from the days of royalty. This royalty comes in size 7.5.
Garnets commonly form in metamorphic rocks deep in the Earth's crust where high temperature and pressure create crystals in the rocks. They can also form where magma intrusions contact metamorphic rocks. They can even form in some igneous rocks.
Citrines are the golden variety of quartz. Their color comes from naturally (rare) or artificially (nearly all citrine on the market) heating amethyst or smoky quartz. At about 400°C (750°F) amethyst turns a mild yellow color, and at about 925°C (1700°F) to turns deep orange to reddish colors.
