Raspberry Garnet Gold Ring

The use of red garnet dates back thousands of years, when it was used by Egyptian pharaohs for both decorative and ceremonial purposes. The ancient Romans also wore garnet rings and traded garnet gemstones. When thinking of garnet, most people think of red gemstones. Garnet most commonly occurs in red, and the origin of the name "garnet" lies in this deep red hue.

It is thought that this adjective could have been extracted from the word "pomegranate", due to the color of the seed coats or shape of the seeds.

Garnet has long been thought of as a travelers stone. In fact, Noah's Ark is said to have had a garnet lantern to help navigate during the night.

To clean your garnets, simply use warm soapy water and a soft cloth. Be sure to rinse well to remove soapy residue. Ultrasonic cleaners and steamers are safe.
