This pair of contemporary Garnet Drop Earrings is an elegant and colorful addition to a jewelry collection. Designed by Lynn Olander, a cluster of three ruby red garnets hangs from a gold fill post. Garnets have been used since the Bronze Age as gemstones and abrasives, and though they come in many colors, red is the stone's signature—and impossible to ignore—hue.
This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
