This Georgian garnet is the exact colour of deep burgundy wine. With movement, the light brings out the shades of deep red from within.

Garnets were mined in Russia, Australia, India, Bohemia, Myanmar, Brazil and Sri Lanka, which used to be called the Island of Jewels.
They were revered by ancient Egyptians and Romans and favourites of the Russian royalty and British Georgians and Victorians. This stunning gem is purported to possess the powers of good health, prosperity and peace, hope and happiness.

This beauty was hand crafted in Georgian England around 1810 in 15 karat rose gold and is not hallmarked, so we carefully tested the gold content. It started life as a clasp. We added a bale made in 9 karat matching colour gold to one end. You can still use it as a clasp by attaching the bale on one end and the tongue of the clasp to the other end of a chain of your choice or - simply leave the tongue out and wear her as a charm pendant !!

The garnet is a beautifully cut, flat, faceted oval stone in a closed back, delicious pinched colet setting, foiled underneath in true Georgian style. This was done to make the garnets glow !! The garnet is a natural pyrope garnet and is in a fantastic shape being over 200 years old, no rubbing on the facets or other damage. She measures 10.26 by 8.55 mm in her setting and is 17.15 mm long with her bale. She weighs 1.5 grams without the clasp tongue and 1.8 grams together with it. She is in great antique condition.

We love .... the Georgian foiled garnet jewellery always. We also think it is fantastic to have a pendant that you can wear, should you choose to as a clasp.
