Seeing Red: Garnet Rings
There are few pieces of jewellery more exquisite looking than garnet rings. Garnet is a beautiful maroon red precious stone that seems to look best when set in a ring made of yellow gold. Yellow gold compliments the garnet, especially when there are 2 smaller diamonds on either sides of the garnet. Garnet is fairly easy to cut and is often found in a variety of shaped and cuts because of that. As well, garnet represents love and is often given as a gift to someone special or close to you. Like a close friend, a family member, or a girlfriend.
The lighter shades of red garnet are sometimes confused as a ruby, and the yellow as a very rare yellow topaz. Clearly garnet is a good money saver when you want to get someone a gift. Sometimes they use garnet after a series of diamonds because the garnet compliments the diamonds when they are lined up, giving the diamonds a slight tinge at certain angles. Jewellers also put these two together for their symbolism, diamonds being success and garnet being love, in other words have a successful love life.
The garnet is not only used for love and promises. It holds a very passionate feel with the deep red and striking appearance in the light. A garnet is never ignored or brushed past. It captures attention and holds the eyes of those it attracts. A garnet is powerful and triumphant when showing off its cuts and flawless complexion.
