Bohemian Garnet Jewelry
Bohemian Garnet - During the reign of Charles IV of Luxembourg, the garnets were referred to frequently in epic literature and in medical and astrological books called Lapidaries. In the legend �Life of St. Catherine�, the garnet is described to symbolize human virtues and placed amongst the finest gemstones.
Bohemian Garnet Cluster Earrings. Original nineteenth-century Bohemian (Czechoslovakian) drop earrings composed of dark burgundy rose-cut garnets arrayed in a flower-like cluster suspended from a single garnet in yellow gold with wire backs.
Bohemian Garnet Necklace. From early-twentieth century Czechoslovakia (aka Bohemia), comes this extravagant fringe necklace, aglow with dusky faceted almandine garnets. The necklace is designed with a fanciful flower and scroll motif centerpiece accompanied left and right by graduated floral drops. A ravishing, romantic vintage adornment crafted, per usual in warmly patinated (formerly gilded) metal.
Graceful and gorgeous, these delicate drops perfectly represent the femininity inherent in Edwardian jewelry design. A stylized, diamond set tear drop shape frames a freely swinging bezel set diamond all of which are suspended from an extremely thin and elongated milgrained knife edge wire. These earrings measure 2 inches in length from the top of the ear wire to the bottom. These earrings are contemporary and made in the Edwardian style.
