Beaded Garnet Ring

SKU: SSRGARDIA17
kr629.00Price

Fine silver is 99,9% pure silver

 

Pure silver is a very soft material

Therefore, Pretiosa uses fine silver for the smaller parts of her jewelry, like bezels and other little details 

 

Sterling silver is 92,5% pure silver

 

This is an alloy made when (usually) copper, the remaining 7.5%, is combined with fine silver

 

This is a less soft and more durable material

 

GARNET

Garnet got its name from the Latin word “Garanatus,” meaning “seedlike". Which makes sence, as small garnets really look like the red seeds you find in pomegranate

 

Thousands of years ago, red garnet necklaces adorned the necks of Egypts pharaohs, and they were seen as prized possessions for the afterlife so they were entombed with their mummified corpses

 

A garnet necklace was found on a man in a grave that dates back to 3000 B.C, so the hardness and durabilty of this stone is really unquestionable

 

In ancient Rome, when important documents were secured, they used signet rings with carved garnets to stamp the wax

 

Throughout time, there have been many ancient traditions and legends about the garnet

Christian tradition considered the blood-red garnet as a symbol of Christ’s sacrifice, and in medievel times it was thought to cure depression, relieve diseases of the liver and protect its owner against bad dreams

The Greeks believed it guarded children from drowning, and that it was potent against poisons

 

Garnet is traditionally gifted for the 19th anniversary of marriage♥
