Vintage/antique GARNET jewelry

Garnet as a gemstone had its heyday in Victorian era when other dark "anti-gems" such as pyrite & jet were also popular. Garnets were thought to cure blood disorders or anger. Pyrope is the name of the deep red, orange-red or purplish garnet. Major source of garnet gems from the Renaissance through the Victorian Era were the "Bohemian " pyrope deposits in the vicinity of Trebenice, Czechoslovakia, thus the name Bohemian garnets.
