The name garnet derives from the Latin word granatum, which means pomegranate. Garnet is the stone of fire, Mars and Scorpio. The vibrant red hues of garnet associated it with blood in Medieval times and were thought to cure many circulatory ailments and aids the liver in expelling toxins. Garnet’s virtues are true friendship, passion, success, self-esteem, and fidelity, making it a famous stone for betrothal in past eras. They promote confidence, which made them a favorite gemstone for ancient warriors. Some even believe pyrope garnets are inside the Ark of the Covenant.
The ring is in very good vintage condition with minimal signs of wear. The garnets are in great shape, none are cracked or chipped, but some have tiny nicks on the facet junctions under magnification. The garnets do not wiggle and are secure in the mounting. The shank is stamped with three crowns (Swedish import mark), S (silver mark) 800 (80% silver), and HE (maker’s mark). It looks like the ring was previously sized. The silver surface shows fine lines and marks typical of vintage jewelry with a larger area of wear on the inside of the band. A GIA Graduate Gemologist tested the garnets.
The ring is a size 7.75 and cannot be sized. The head measures 6/8″ tall and wide and weighs 4.14 grams. The box is for display only.
