Garnet Jewelry has been popular for some 5000 years. Not only was Garnet (also known as Carbuncle) one of the four Stones given to King Solomon by none other than God himself, but Garnet necklaces that adorned the royal necks of the Pharos in daily life were taken along on the trip to the afterlife - entombed with the mummified kings. Garnet was a rare gemstone that was a favorite of nobility and the clergy in the Middle Ages. The bohemian Central Europe Garnet deposit discoveries in 1500 made the gem available to every wo/man and marked the surge in popularity of jewelry encrusted with Garnet.

ANTIQUE GARNET JEWELRY
Bohemia, the kingdom which later became Czechoslovakia, was among other things known for its incredibly deep red Garnets and jewels. Garnets were used in the stunning Victorian jewelry design, which often used ornate flower motifs. Antique pieces are available at auctions, antique stores and copies are often reproduced in today's designs. Many designers are creating 'vintage-style' pieces that pay tribute to the era. One of the trademark designs is the flower halo with a center stone and a row or more of smaller stones encircling it.

Contemporary designers are fascinated by Garnet. For example, there are three types of red Garnet; Almandine Garnet which appears the darkest of the three, Pyrope Garnet, which is likened to Ruby, and Rhodolite Garnet.
