9CT GOLD OVAL CUT GARNET STUD EARRINGS
These Garnet stud earrings are the versatile accessories you need! They are made from high-quality 9ct Gold, and prominently feature two oval-cut Garnet gemstones. These deep red stones are associated with protection from negative forces, and are also incredibly beautiful, with a shimmering, textured colour that is both eye-catching and bold.
These handmade jewellery pieces make a great Christmas or birthday gift for someone who is born in winter; Garnet is the traditional birthstone for January. The deep cranberry red gemstone immediately lends itself to festive, seasonal outfits! However, these simple and gorgeous studs can be worn all year long.
The stones are 5x3mm in size. These studs are also available with Amethyst, Aquamarine, Ruby, and sapphire in White Gold.
Garnet's name is derived from the Latin word “granatus” as it is similar in shape to the seed of a pomegranate. This jewel supposedly has the ability to illuminate even the darkest of rooms; it is written that Noah used the gem to light the inside of the Ark. There are many other legends that involve Garnet’s mystical lighting and brightening capabilities (known technically today as fluorescence). Several cultures have finely ground Garnet and heated it to act as a medicinal remedy for illness. When studying the myths and legends surrounding Garnet, whether it be stories relating to the Aztecs, Romans, Egyptians, Native Americans or British Royalty, there is one theme common in all civilisations, across all periods of recorded time: Garnet is the ultimate gift of love.
