Robert Michael purchased several Hessonite Garnet crystals from a source in Sri Lanka and faceted two of them into these matching 8x6mm oval gems weighing 1.5 carats each. He choose a Standard Oval Brilliant cut for these gems. Robert then set the Garnets in 14kt Yellow Gold Post Earrings.
There are at least six different colors of Garnets including a variety of red tones, orange, like these Hessonite, and green. Even with this variety all Garnets are considered the January Birthstone, with red tones being the traditional Birthstone color.
This set is on display at Castle Rocks & Jewelry, located on the West side of I-25 in the Meadows near the AMC Theaters, and may be purchased directly from them.
