GARNETS are the birthstone for January, although that does not stop those of us with other birth months from enjoying them. The Bohemian garnet was only found in Bohemia and was valued for it's color, beauty and supposed curative and uplifting effects. Garnet jewelry is varied in style and garnets themselves range from multi-faceted reflectors of rich deep reds to cabochons, juicy as pomegranate seeds. They also come in almost all colors except blue.

Garnets were mounted in both low and higher karat yellow gold, gold plate and mixed metal settings and more recently in sterling. The history of garnet jewelry goes back hundreds of years and it's longevity is no surprise when you see how glorious they are. Bohemian garnet jewelry is known for it's encrusted close-set stones, which are often rose cut and sometimes combined with larger cabochons and faceted stones. (Bohemia became Czechoslovakia after World War I.)

An article in the "Journal of the Society of the Arts" August 25, 1892, states that at that time there were over 3000 cutters working in 500 shops in the Bohemian garnet industry. With the miners and other workers there were about 10,000 persons making a living in the industry, and they certainly made a lot of wonderful jewelry.

They are found in Pegu, in Asia, Brazil and Ceylon. The Bohemian Garnet is composed of a double silicate of Alumina and Iron, and are found in great abundance in Bohemia, Saxony and other parts of Germany."
