If you love to dazzle, but diamonds aren't really your thing, then allow us to introduce you to the next best thing: Bohemian garnets!
These crimson hued beauties hail from the region of Bohemia (which later became Czechoslovakia), and were all the rage in the Victorian era through the turn of the century.
Often clustered together in pave settings to avoid seeing any traces of metal, Bohemian garnets were often rose cut to add varying tones and rich dimension as well as to make them sparkle in any lighting situation.
This stunning bracelet is so choc full of sparkle, it was nearly impossible to photograph! Believe us when we say the photos do not do it justice!
This piece is encrusted with hundreds of rose cut Bohemian garnets in varying shapes and sizes layered on top of one another. The depth in this piece is outstanding! You almost don't know where to look!
The centerpiece of this bracelet almost has a snowflake feel too it, while the connecting links are shaped like flowers.
Bracelet is set in gold gilt (or possibly a low carat garnet gold) and has a 14k safety chain.
