Ahead of commencing my experiments on coloured stones at GIA, I did not assume too very of garnets. In particular my sister, who’s birthstone is garnet, she normally mentioned that her birthstone was “the unappealing brown a single.” Due to the fact then, things have adjusted. Whilst now I feel of garnet regarding particular gravity and getting a cubic crystal structure among the other factors, I even have started to actually enjoy the Victorian Bohemian garnet items. The clustered, rose reduce garnets search actually lovely versus any skintone and definitely get noticed. Earlier mentioned is a photo I shot of two items we bought at Walton’s Antique Jewelry; the ring coincidentally was acquired by my sister who generally believed her birthstone was unsightly. Not these! Under are other Bohemian garnet jewels, check them out:
