We like big garnets, and we cannot lie.

People have adored January’s birthstone for literally thousands of years. Egyptian tombs have been found with strings of beads made out of garnets around mummy’s necks. In Ancient Rome, carved garnet signet rings were specifically used to seal important documents with wax. The philosopher Plato, even had his portrait engraved onto a large slab of garnet. People have loved these deep red stones for like ever, and the love ain’t quitting anytime soon. Legend has it, that Noah, as in the ark Noah, illuminated the boat during nighttime with a bright garnet.

Garnets were one of the most popular stone choice in the Georgian era too, when this bad ass beauty was made. A sizable garnet was cut into a cabochon to be the star of this memorial ring. Garnets represent a cure for depression and protect against nightmares, and since this ring was made as a symbol of mourning for a loved one, we believe it was a talisman of healing. There’s definitely a mysterious power in this ring. With the deep red stone, paired with black enameling, in a warm yellow gold band, this stunner certainly only gave us pleasant dreams.
