Red lights don’t always mean stop. We’re turning the tables on the traffic authorities with a reminder that red used to mean go, especially the deep red that can only come from a garnet. These popular deep-red African stones have a long history, going back to Biblical times, when Noah used a garnet lantern to light his way through dark and stormy nights on the Ark. It’s all to do with garnet’s high refractive index, which means it captures and disperses light in a way that other gems can’t hope to compete with.
We couldn’t resist something that shines so bright and that’s why we created the Carmesi Garnet Ring, with a luminous 2 3/5 carat red garnet gemstone at the center. Combining the mystery of deep, dark red with the dazzle that only garnet can deliver, the Carmesi is a knockout. The centerpiece is made even brighter by the sparkle of the 10 lab-created DiamondAura® stones that surround it, all set in the glow of rose gold-finished sterling silver. The perfect gift for the light of your life.
