The sheaf of three grain ear studded with garnets presented here evokes late summer memories. We see countless pyrope garnets of Bohemian origin arranged on two levels. The deep red stones in various old cuts seem to sway in the warm wind of late summer, showing the skill and range of the gem cutters of Bohemia. The corn sheaf is a classic motif of the 19th century, which could be worn not only in the countryside, but also in the city whenever when an autumnal impression was desired, or, for example, a garden party was given! In addition, in the Christian faith, it is a symbol of a fulfilled life. Typical for garnet jewellery of the Biedermeier period in the mid-19th century, the garnets are set in tombac. On the stem, a graceful bow adds a nostalgic touch to the brooch created around 1860.

Garnets, as a dark, blood-red and mysterious stone has always been the object of desire of women of all ages. Garnet jewelry suits almost every occasion and therefore is worn not only in the evening or on festive occasions. The most widely used are the dark red pyrope garnets. In the Middle Ages, they were among the preferred carbuncle stones and even today you can see a lot of antique jewellery set with red garnets. These mostly come from the sites in Bohemia. Since the garnet as a gemstone is relatively insensitive, once acquired garnet jewelry can be a companion for a lifetime.
