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 in Greek Mythology, when Persephone returned to her mother every year.
Pearls are a symbol of purity, and were highly sought after in the Victorian Era, as diving for them was difficult and dangerous.
This ring utilizes the contrast of deep red garnets with creamy white pearls, set in 14 karat gold with a burnished patina. The shoulders are absolutely lovely, with beautiful repousse work extending around the shank. A true keepsake of the Victorian age, it will find a place of honor in your collection!
