Autumn days when the grass is jewelled...

First off is an unusual Hessonite and Diamond Ring. Hessonite is a type of Grossular Garnet which has a unique warm treacly colour, and in this ring it is set off by the asymmetric diamonds on either side. Since Garnet is a fairly hard stone, it need not be reserved just for special occasions, and would really come to life in the autumn sun. So often, Citrines are a glaringly bright yellow colour but this next ring houses a naturally coloured Citrine with a beautifully toned down hue. Complementing its colour perfectly, the fancy cut of the stone gives this ring a wonderfully vintage feel which would complete any autumnal look. My final ring just has to include a Tourmaline. They come in a rainbow of colours but the peacock green of this impressive stone (14x10mm) has a wonderful Seventies feel which is bang on trend but with the modern addition of a widely spaced split shank, glimmering with pave set Diamonds. Lush.
