Romantic Garnet Earrings

Red is the color of love and romance, and what could be more romantic than gorgeous color of rich red garnets! Garnets are the birthstone of January babies, and its name comes from the Latin word granatus, meaning like a grain, which refers to the way the crystals resemble grains or seeds embedded in the matrix.

These gorgeous earrings started with a handmade frame of sterling silver wire that was hand forged, then wrapped with yards of 30-gauge sterling silver wire. The 3mm faceted garnet roundels and 2mm sterling silver beads were “stitched” onto the frame, and then the entire piece was antiqued to show all the fine details.

These romantic garnet earrings are 2-1/8 inches in length; the dangle is 1-3/4 inches long and 1 inch at its widest point. They are the perfect romantic gift for a bride-to-be, a January baby or any fashionista! You will find them here!

Thank you for looking!
