These ultra-feminine Petite Rhodolite Garnet Pierced Earrings accent pear-shaped rhodolite garnets—sought for their lovely raspberry-to-purplish hue—with dainty freshwater pearls. Handmade with exceptional delicacy, the bezels, pendants, and findings are 14k gold vermeil. Made in the U.S.A. Natural variations will occur.
Evoking garnet gems and jewelry at our National Museum of Natural History, this Petite Rhodolite Garnet Jewelry is an elegant 21st century presentation of gems that were prized by ancient civilizations. A stunning 15.75 carat faceted rhodolite garnet is one of over 375,000 individual specimens curated by the museum’s National Gem Collection.
Most often reddish in color, garnets (rock-forming minerals with a crystal structure) are actually a family of 15 distinct minerals in colors of every shade with the exception of blue. Five are commonly used as gemstones. The most popular garnets are pyrope (usually dark red) and rhodolite (raspberry red or purplish-red). Garnet is the official birthstone for January.
