The pomegranate, a rosy-hued fruit, bursting with plentiful, glowing red, jewel- like seeds, is one of the oldest, cultivated fruits. The ancient Greeks believed it to have been planted by The Goddess of love, Aphrodite on the island of Cyprus.
Garnets are associated with love, life blood, and the human heart. Because of its similarity to pomegranate seeds, is also symbolic of friendship, and the safe return of loved ones, just as Persephone returned from the Underworld to her mother every Spring, in Greek Mythology.

Set in rich 18 karat yellow gold, it has beautiful pronged bezels, and fleur de lis motifs on the shoulders. Like a juicy, strawberry gelee' dessert, it will both tempt and delight you with its sweetness!
