15 Dec 2010 8 black garnet garnet is my birthstone and I never much cared for the typical crimson colored stone associated with the gem. I think I’d been a lot happier with all those garnet jewelry gifts growing up if they’d been black like this beauty. 8 Responses to “black garnet” 15 Dec jillian said: gorgeous! and so unique. xoxo jcd 15 Dec Kelly said: beautiful! 15 Dec laura said: that setting is so lovely. and stones that are set backward (is this one?) are just so darn cool. 15 Dec darcy said: i agree. having my garnets mistaken for rubies as a little girl always sort of frustrated me. i’d love something now with a little black garnet. 15 Dec Leah said: I’m garnet too! High-fives for January birthdays! 15 Dec erica said: garnet is my birthstone, too, and i never really loved it until i saw a victorian ring at an antiques shop in maine. i agree, the darker and blacker the better with this stone! gorgeous. 15 Dec Whatever DeeDee Wants said: It’s so pretty!
