A crimson coffin-cut garnet is set into warm 10k yellow gold as a modern memento mori. The clasped hands detail - a symbol of faith, love and devotion - is concealed in the wearer's palm. It's believed that garnets can help you resist melancholy; they're also said to ward off evil spirits and help you find light in the night's darkness.

Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)

 

   Spring and Fall: to a Young Child

   Margaret, are you grieving
   Over Goldengrove unleaving?
   Leaves, like the things of man, you
   With your fresh thoughts care for, can you?
   Ah! as the heart grows older
   It will come to such sights colder
   By and by, nor spare a sigh
   Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie;
   And yet you will weep and know why.
   Now no matter, child, the name:
   Sorrow's springs are the same.
   Nor mouth had, no nor mind, expressed
   What héart héard of, ghóst guéssed:
   It is the blight man was born for,
   It is Margaret you mourn for.
