When you are shopping for rhodolite garnet jewelry, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the garnet. Brilliant with a juicy raspberry color, rhodolite garnet's rosy glow is universally flattering against the skin. This beautiful purplish-red garnet was discovered in 1882 in the hills of North Carolina. Tiffany gemologist and author George Kunz named it after the rhododendron that grows in the mountains of that state.
Color is the most important value factor: the more attractive its raspberry hue, the more valuable the rhodolite garnet. Cut is even more important than clarity, since a well-cut rhodolite garnet will dance with light.
Because all Gemvara jewelry is made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality rhodolite garnets to perfectly suit your design.
What is the meaning of rhodolite garnet in the language of gems? Garnet is the traveler's gem: it protects you when you are far from home. Rhodolite garnets symbolize loyalty and kindness. In a Grimm Fairy Tale, an old lady who rescues an injured bird is rewarded with a magical garnet that lights up the night. A garnet also lit the way for Noah's Ark.
Garnet is the January birthstone, the Aquarius zodiac gem, and the 2nd anniversary gem.
In addition to rhodolite garnet, Gemvara also carries more affordable red garnet jewelry set with Mozambique garnets, which have an earthy red ocher color.
With a color that complements every metal, garnet jewelry is crafted in sterling silver, white, yellow, or rose gold, and platinum. Because your rhodolite garnet jewelry will catch the eye, you will want to match the color of garnet earrings or a garnet necklace closely to the color of a garnet ring.
