Story

The garnet gemstones we refer to as “Bohemian garnets” were mined in the Bohemian region of Eastern Europe formerly known as Czechoslovakia and currently as the Czech Republic. The gem became quite popular in the Victorian era of the 19th century when jewelers developed a characteristic style of the garnets entirely dominating the metal into which they were set closed back. Patterns such as stars, floral shapes and clusters were often repeated within an individual piece.

Somewhere around 1890 - 1910, pieces, such as this one represented here were created in which the type of setting changed from closed to open back. A sumptuous and romantic necklace of rose gold over silver (often termed “garnet gold”) is depicted in a garland design inspired by the ornate styles of 18th century rococo. Opposing c-curves symmetrically flank a central garnet-encrusted circle with a gem-set flowerhead form. Floral and tear-drop shaped elements swing from ribbon-like pendant surmounts in an articulated dance of movement and rhythm.

Date: Circa 1900.
