Garnet’s name originates with the Latin words granatum malum, which means pomegranate. The deep burnt red color of this stone is said to be comparable to that of pomegranate seeds, although garnets come in a variety of other colors such as bright oranges and soft yellows. The garnet is often associated with divided love and safe returns as in Greek mythology, Hades gave Persephone pomegranate seeds to ensure her return to him.
In this month of returning travelers, King Jewelers features a Garnet Cabochon from Marco Bicego’s Confetti Gemme Collection. This ring is made of hand-engraved 18 carat yellow gold and is set with a “tumble cut” cabochon garnet gemstone.
