Carbuncles

Vintage ring with beautiful bohemian garnets, 2nd half of the 20th century.

Garnet, as a dark, blood-red and mysterious stone, has always been the object of desire for people of all ages. Garnet jewellery suits almost every occasion and is therefore not only worn in the evening or on festive occasions. Most commonly used are the dark red pyrope garnets. This vintage ring made of gold and bohemian garnets exudes the warm shimmer of its dark red gemstones. The ring head is in the shape of a quatrefoil and is completely set with rose-cut garnets. The interplay between the restrained gold settings and the narrow ring rail creates a festively beautiful picture. In the Middle Ages, garnets were known as "carbuncle stones" and were charged with meaning. Thus they stood for the glow of love and were carried as talismans. The origin of the term is Latin: "Carbunculus", later also "carfunculus" means as much as red glowing coal. The beautiful ring is solidly crafted and delights with its classic shape. Since garnet as a gemstone is relatively insensitive, garnet jewellery once purchased can be a companion for a lifetime.
