Garnets get their name from the delicious pomegranate! Derived from the Latin word “Garanatus” meaning seed like. For millennia, this stone has been a metaphor for passion, a gift of love. Two beautiful deep red garnet beads hang from recycled 18K gold ear wires in these limited-edition earrings. Each bead measures approximately 3/4" x 1/2", hanging 1 1/8" from 18K recycled gold ear wires, and contain about 45 carats. Exact stone shape and color may vary slightly from the image shown.
