Story

Taking the name from the region of Bohemia in the Czech Republic, Bohemian garnets have a fiery dark-hued claret color. Typically the stones are set very close with very little metal exposed. Earlier pieces from the late 19th century were set closed back and foiled; those after 1900, such as this 1910 example are open backed.

Designed as a festoon necklace, the faceted pyrope garnets have been placed in the traditional patterns of star and floral shapes and clusters. The unusual “sea horse” or modified “S” configuration provides a lovely sense of balance and symmetry for the vermeil (silver gilt) period piece.
