Faceted garnet is set on a sterling silver snow crystal pendant, accented by hand hammered silver. On fabulous diamond cut oxidized silver chain.
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.
