black garnet

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.

    that setting is so lovely. and stones that are set backward (is this one?) are just so darn cool.

    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.

    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.
