Garnet is incredibly versatile due to its great variety of colors and is ideal for almost any type of jewelry, such as rings, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, hair pins and other beautiful ornaments. Those planning to use garnets in jewelry should first consider their preferred color. The choice of garnet colors is great, with yellow, orange, peach, green, red, purple, blue, brown and pink possibilities. Since garnet has such a long history, there is a great deal of beautiful red garnet antique jewelry available. Almandine garnet crystals occur in larger sizes than pyrope garnet, so almandine is often used as central stones. Traditional pyrope garnet jewelry from the Bohemian mines of Central Europe typically features small, closely-set stones that appear like ripe, glistening pomegranate seeds. Garnet has also been worked into various modern designs, such as drilled garnet stacked earrings, square cut garnets, or garnets set into smooth, sleek silver. Garnets are also mixed with other gemstones of contrasting color to create an innovative modern look.
