Cinnamon Garnet necklace | shaded Hessonite with Gold Applications
Made to order (2-3 weeks)
This is a beautifully natural necklace made of shaded faceted Hessonite Garnet roundels with gold vermeil elements.
This special variety of Garnet, Hessonite, is also called the Cinnamon Stone.
It is orange to brown in colour and belongs to the family of grossular Garnets that are usually green.
So indeed a very special stone.
I have chosen nice warm honey and caramel tones and enhanced them with golden pearls and a high quality clasp both made from vermeil.
Vermeil is gold-plated Sterling Silver.
The name 'Garnet' stems from its resemblance to the colour palette of the seeds of the fleshy seeds of the pomegranate fruit.
In other languages Garnet is called 'Granat', the same name as the fruit.
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.
Garnet is said to cure melancholy and to warm the heart.
It also symbolises vitality in all its forms, such as strength and fertility.
Garnet is believed to have the power to bring success in business, fame and popularity, providing protection and bringing spiritual awareness.
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.
It is also the gem to be given on a 2nd and 6th Wedding Anniversary.
Garnet is January's birthstone.
