Antique Victorian Bohemian Garnet Pendant, c. 1890

The sky begins to darken early these days. To combat the darkness, twinkling lights seem to go on everywhere, this time of year, combating the darkness, brightening up the edges. Garnets live for this kind of light, every facet glitters, glowing and flashing like diamonds dipped in rich cabernet.

Bohemian garnet jewelry came in all shapes and sizes, I was particularly drawn to this glittering example with it's wonderful spiky edge. Twenty four pear shaped rose cut garnets grace the edge of this pendant and eighty eight round faceted garnets fill out the rest. This pendant was actually made as a locket backed piece but it's lost it's frame over the years. Made in about 1890, the metal tests as low karat garnet gold. The pendant measures 1 1/5 inches long and just over an inch wide, it weighs 7 grams.
