COMMENTS: Glorious garnets glow with a firey claret-red color in this exquisitely designed double halo ring that makes a statement at 1″ in diameter. The top of the ring appears to be made of silver and is set with a large cabochon cut garnet and 25 bohemian cut garnets; these features indicate the top portion dates back to the late 1800’s. The gold rim around it and the setting making this into a ring was an alteration done likely around the 1940’s. The cabochon garnet gleams from within a double halo of faceted bohemian garnets. The ring stands proud at about 1/2″ off the finger. “Bohemian garnets” are garnets mined in an area once known as Bohemia (it often refers to the entire Czech territory, including Moravia and Czech Silesia). They are the variety of garnet called pyrope (from the Greek words pyr for “fire” and ops for “eye”). Bohemian garnet gems are said to have excellent clarity and purity. Traditional garnet jewelry from this region brings to mind the inside of a pomegranate fruit, ripe with glistening red seed pods. This is because the gems had a similar shape and were traditionally set closely together with very little metal showing. Bohemian garnet jewelry was extremely popular during the late nineteenth century, when it was worn by Victorians. It was around this time when a jewelry school was opened in Turnov. The jewelry produced there did not enjoy such great popularity in the 20th century, but in the 21st century, traditional Bohemian garnet jewelry enjoyed a revival.
