Georgian Garnet, Seed Pearl and Turquoise Drop Earrings

About Details
Garnet takes its name from the Latin "granate" meaning seed. This moniker is an allusion to the red variety of the gemstone's likeness in color to the pomegranate seed, but garnets actually occur in all colors with the exception of blue. The red and purplish varieties of the mineral (pyrope and almandine) are the most common in the family and thereby the most popular and frequently used in jewelry. These lovely Georgian earrings each feature two heart-shaped almandine garnets suspended from a single round. The hearts at the base of each earring are suspended from a crown of seed pearls and turquoise.
