Gorgeous raw garnet gemstones shine set in these 18k gold plated stud earrings. So simple and so perfect for everyday wear. These natural stones are all different but similar to photos and average about 3-4mm. The word “garnet” comes from the 14th Century Middle English word “gernet” meaning dark red. The word is derived from Latin “granatum” which means seed, and is called so because of the gemstone’s resemblance to the beautifully red seeds of the pomegranate. The garnet also symbolized deep and lasting friendship. With that legend in mind, give a garnet to someone whose friendship you deeply value. No matter why or how you wear garnet, this beautiful gemstone is perfect for those who share January birthdays and get to start each New Year with a sense of goodwill, happiness, and purpose. *These are natural stones so measurements are averages. Some pairs will be be larger, some smaller. To see all the goodies in my shop, click here: www.etsy.com/shop/OneTribeJewelry Free domestic shipping on all orders over $35 via First Class Mail.
