Sparkling Blossoms

Ear studs with antique bohemian garnets in silver, around 1860/2019

The mysteriously glowing garnet has been loved as a gemstone since earliest times. Most commonly used were the dark red pyrope garnets, which we also find in the piece of jewellery presented here. These gemstones come from sites in Bohemia and delight with deep and rich color. The pair of garnet earrings presented here impresses with such dark red garnets, which have come together to form a small blossom. The stones were originally part of a 19th century necklace, which unfortunately only came to us in fragments, and were set in silver in the years around 1860. Our goldsmith has therefore attached stud earrings to the small blossoms and added matching ear nuts so that they can now be worn as earrings. Since garnet as a gemstone is relatively insensitive, once acquired garnet jewelry can be a companion for a lifetime.
