The name of the juicy red gemstone, garnet, has its roots in the Latin word garanatus, meaning “seeds.” Why? Because thousands of years ago, when garnet was first discovered, someone noted the similarity between the rich color of the vivid red gemstones and the natural color of the bright red seeds found inside pomegranates.
Thanks to this powerful natural hue, garnet was so precious and pricey that it was only worn by those with power and plenitude. For the general public, it was an out-of-reach treasure. Garnet remains a prized gemstone today, but is now within grasp of those with an eye for something enticing.
The Forbidden Fruit Earrings showcase almost two carats of this naturally rich red colored gemstone in glorious gold-finished .925 sterling silver, adding a warm glow to the luxuriously deep-red hues.
