Affinity Garnet Collection - Necklace
The deep red garnet gemstone gets its name 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 and its similarity to the pomegranate fruit is a symbol of love that lasts forever, even when your loved one is far away. The association goes all the way back to Ancient Greek mythology, where Hades takes the goddess Persephone to his underworld kingdom to rule by his side. When Persephone’s father, Zeus, orders her return, Hades gives Persephone a pomegranate, knowing she will then return every year to taste it once more.
The Affinity Garnet Set is ripe with 200 carats of red garnet gemstones that serve as a passionate promise. Cut and faceted to even more closely resemble pomegranate seeds, this necklace says "no distance is too great, no time zone too late, no object insurmountable." A single, cultured freshwater pearl accompanies the garnet, its cool, elegant iridescence providing a perfect contrast to the red-hot emotion of the garnet gemstones. The Affinity Garnet Set shows you how you feel — and all without sending your bank account to hell and back.
