Chunky Garnet Necklace measuring 18″ long and finished with a gold plated toggle clasp. The Chunky Garnet Necklace is made up of tumble cut (faceted) natural Garnet. Garnets are a heavy stone in comparison to others and due to their relatively high refractive index exhibit a wonderfully sparkly adamantine lustre. For a special one-off set match this necklace to the bracelet in the collection.
About the materials used in our Chunky Garnet Necklace
Garnet is the birthstone for January and the stone that celebrates the 2nd anniversary of marriage. The name “garnet” comes from the Latin word “Garanatus,” meaning “seedlike,” in reference to a pomegranate. This reference makes sense as small garnets look like the bright red seeds you find inside in a pomegranate. The garnet has been a popular gem throughout history. Garnets were found as beads in a necklace worn by a young man in a grave that dates back to 3000 B.C. This is proof of the hardness and durability of the stone.
