Garner Your Love for Garnet Pendant Designs
More often than not, even the most informed gemstone lovers associate the colour red with rubies. Of course, rubies are the best-known and widely used red stone in the jewellery industry. However, when you look for red gemstone jewellery, you need not limit your options to rubies alone. There is another red gemstone that exudes the crimson charm as brilliantly as rubies. Yes, we are talking about garnets. Its lovely rich colour is perfectly showcased when light passes through the stone, which makes it ideal for making rings, pendants, earrings, and other types of jewellery. At BlueStone, our designers have created a contemporary collection of garnet pendant designs and paired them with a range of contrasting precious stones and metals to bring out the best of this resilient, versatile stone.
All You Should Know About Garnets
The word garnet translates to ‘deep red’ which describes the best quality of this stone. It comes from granatus, a Latin word that refers to pomegranates. Can’t find the connection between garnets and pomegranates? Take a look at the garnet pendants in our collection and these red beauties look much like the bright red seeds of a pomegranate. Due to its colour and scintillation, garnets were a popular gemstone throughout history.
History has it that Plato, the great Greek philosopher, commissioned an artist to engrave his portrait on a garnet stone. This red gemstone exploded in popularity in Europe during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Garnets enjoyed their heyday during the Victorian era and designers of the period used it to make stunning brooches and other jewellery. Many of the garnets used in olden days came from Bohemia and unsurprisingly, they were called Bohemian garnets. Besides being able to pair well with a number of occasions, precious stones, and metals, the garnet is more than just a pretty face. It is even used as an abrasive material in industries!

Strung on a delicate chain, this piece can be worn with an array of outfits. For a heart with a contemporary twist (literally), the Hearty Love Pendant uses yellow gold to form the word ‘love’, embellished with diamonds. A heart-shaped garnet sits brightly on this design, catching your attention and appealing to your hearts.
The Just Say Love Pendant is another romantic design with a red, heart-shaped garnet placed within a gold circle. Minimalist yet refined, this pendant is equally versatile and can be worn with Indian and Western ensembles just as easily.
