Juicy and divine, these rhodolite garnet earrings are like nothing before or since.
With a color that simply explodes with plum tones, purple pinks, and intense fuchsia highlights, it is a dangle earring that appears as magical as they are wearable.
A hollow cage of 18k gold is constructed of 17 oval garnets. Between are orbs of gold and at the bottom, a circular base. Around this time, these lyrical scalloped-shaped bezels came into use, and they impart an extra something special to each garnet.
Two old cushion cut diamonds grace each connection to the top oval garnets, and modern shepherd's hook ear wires complete the look.
