January Birthstone: Garnets

Garnets in 14K Gold

"To display Gold, use a red background, to display Silver, use blue".
Deep red garnets in gold are one of my favorite things. I don't like to add diamonds to the design, for it limits the wearability of the piece. Diamonds, thither and yon, are wonderful at an after 5 affair, but during the day, at work, an informal lunch, they really are not to the scale of the day.

Gemstones like Garnets are spectacular by themselves, and with other stones as well, being the focal, or as an added highlight to the piece.
