GARNET TEARDROPS ( Antique Victorian Jewelry Garnet Pierced Earrings ): These elegant Victorian Bohemian Garnet Earrings remind me of a fine rare red wine – both because of their deep wine color and their rarity. Antique garnet brooches are not that uncommon, but fine garnet earrings are much more difficult to find. These highly prized Bohemian Garnets were mined in what is not the Czech Republic. The Victorians believed that garnets would enrich the blood and provide the wearer with a long and healthy life. These pierced earrings consist of an unusually large teardrop shaped cabochon cut garnet encircled by a row of small faceted glimmering garnets. It swings freely from an inverted “V” of garnets which help set it off. They in turn dangle from a gold shepherd's hook fronted by three small faceted garnets. All the garnets are set in closed back rose gold with one large opening behind the teardrop garnet allowing it to glow from within. Just picture how elegant you will look wearing these to you next black-tie event!

Condition: Excellent.
Size: Top to bottom of garnets 1 5/8” long, 5/8” wide, 1/4” deep. Total length 1 7/8”.
