- Unique No: 977
Double bracelet with facetted Garnet spheres and two different kinds of Sterling Silver chains, one with smaller and one with larger loops.
The Garnets have been facetted and polished, so they reflect the light nicely.
I have also used two sizes of Garnets, so the bracelet can really be worn two ways, one side looking a little different than the other.
The two strands are joined by a polished Sterling Silver piece consisting of 3 handcrafted Silver geometrical forms.
The length is 19.5cm.
The colour of these Zambian Garnets is dark red to purple and orange in colour with some interesting inclusions if you look closer.
The name 'Garnet' stems from its resemblance to the seeds of the fleshy seeds of the pomegranate fruit,
which the nuggets on this necklace are also similar to in shape.
In other languages Garnet is called 'Granat', the same name as the fruit.
Garnet is said to cure melancholy and to warm the heart.
It also symbolises vitality in all its forms, such as strength and fertility.
Its powers include healing, strength, and it is often worn to relieve skin inflammations.
It also regulates the heart and blood flow and aid in curing depression.
Garnet is believed to have the power to bring success in business, fame and popularity, providing protection and bringing spiritual awareness.
Slices of Garnet have been used in windows in churches and temples,
and according to the legend, Noah has suspended a garnet in the ark in order to disperse light.
It is also the gem to be given on a 2nd and 6th Wedding Anniversary.
Garnet is January's birthstone.
