GARNET & BOHEMIAN GARNET JEWELRY



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.
