While garnets were much loved during the Georgian Era, finding authentic 18th century garnet pieces has become increasingly uncommon. The pomegranate colored gems were used to represent passion- towards friends, family, yourself, or even life. Garnet jewelry was often exchanged between lovers and friends to symbolize their affection and excitement for that person. This association between garnets and passion can be traced all the way back to the ancient Greeks who believed these stones were the ultimate token of love. 

 

This incredible Georgian garnet half hoop band is a collector’s dream. Not only because its ancient symbolism but also due to its rarity and pristine condition. Seven flat cut garnet that have an absorbing, almost mysterious effect, crawl across the golden band. The band itself possesses a special detail- floral engraving along the back. Not unlike garnets, flowers were used to show emotion towards another (a tradition that has lasted to today!), so we believe that this band was created with devotion on the mind. A centuries old love memento.
