Vintage Miriam Haskell chain dons a mosaic pendant of such magnificence, we think a Greek Goddess would have worn it proudly... so it's PERFECT for you, darling Sophanista.
In January's birthstone collection, garnet is said to offer protection through travel, attributed with the power of protecting wearers from nightmares and snakebites, and are also thought to provide guidance in the dark.
The use of red garnet dates back thousands of years, when it was used by Egyptian pharaohs for both decorative and ceremonial purposes. The ancient Romans also wore garnet rings and traded garnet gemstones.
Thank you, darling Sophanista.
