Garnet Teardrop Earrings
Overall length: 1 5/8" from top of ear wire

Garnets with the deep red of pomegranate seeds rest in the cradle of handmade and hammered brass hoops. Tiny accents of antiqued and polished copper provide contrast against the brass.
Garnet has been used by civilizations for over 5000 years, and in that time has been considered a healing stone, a sacred stone, a warrior's stone and a talisman of invulnerability. Today we admire garnet for both its incredible beauty, hardness and resilience.
The garnets used in this piece have been cut into shape and tumble-polished, and retain some natural characteristics such as inclusions.
