Rhodolite Garnet Necklaces


About Rhodolite Garnet Necklaces

When you are shopping for rhodolite garnet necklaces, 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 necklaces are made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality rhodolite garnet 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.
