87 Carbuncles

Wonderful bracelet with bohemian garnets in gold, 1960s

This warm gold bracelet brings together a total of 87 Bohemian garnets in a design from the mid-20th century. Almond-shaped elements are strung together to create a flowing, harmonious picture, with the central element being particularly large and magnificently worked out. The radiant dark red gemstones harmonize perfectly with the finely crafted gold of the restrained setting. The garnets used here are stones from Bohemia, which convince with their particularly deep red colouring and which were known in the Middle Ages under the term "carbuncle stone". Unlike most designs with garnets, they are not grouped into rosettes here, but correspond to the spirit of Midcentury Modernism. A pretty vintage garnet bracelet, festive and elegant!

The garnet, as a dark and mysterious stone has always been the object of desire of people of all ages. Garnet jewelry fits 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, which we also find in the piece of jewellery presented here. These gemstones come from localities in Bohemia and delight with their deep and rich color. Since garnet as a gemstone is relatively insensitive, garnet jewelry once purchased can be a companion for a lifetime.
