EMPRESS SET – 18K YELLOW GOLD, GARNET, RUBY AND BRILLIANT CUT DIAMOND NECKLACE AND EARRINGS
A lot can be said about GARNET, whose history spans over 4,000 years, as evinced by the fact that archaeologists found a young man who had been dead for 3,000 years wearing a piece of jewelry with garnets. Plato, the philosopher of ancient Rome, had his portrait done on a GARNET by a famous Roman engraver. In Bohemia, which today is part of the Czech Republic, the interior of castles and churches is magnificently decorated with GARNETS. GARNET was also very popular in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as it was often used in Victorian jewels and was a gemstone of choice in medieval Spain. An interesting aspect of this gemstone is that its name originated from the English word POMEGRANATE, because when used in traditional Bohemian jewelry pieces, its small red stones looked like pomegranate grains.
Fascinated by the shine and color of the exotic GARNET, the Artist used this gemstone as the centerpiece of her jewelry creations surrounded in brilliant cut diamonds, the most desirable of all gemstones, and by RUBIES, the gemstone of strength and passion.
The result was this magnificent, striking and delicate set designed for refined, sensitive and passionate women.
