Product information "KARFUNKEL"

Wine-red to red-violet, almandine was already being used in jewelry by the ancient Greeks and Romans, but also in the Middle Ages.

Almandine has remained popular throughout the ages. They were particularly fashionable in the late 18th and 19th centuries.

They were used to make parures  or used in mourning and friendship jewelry.

It was mainly the middle classes who wore garnet jewelry at that time. In the 19th century, almandines were often cut into cabochons and were then called carbuncle stones.

In fairy tales, carbuncle refers to a fiery red gemstone with the power to make the wearer invisible.

This beautiful garnet necklace consists of four strands of garnet that nestle against the lady's neck.

Each individual almandine was painstakingly threaded and knotted by hand.

The clasp  is set with a magnificent large almandine or carbuncle with a richly faceted cut.

The clasp is reminiscent of a flower with a large garnet in the middle.

The high-quality setting is adorned with alternating floral and volute-like elements, set with additional small garnet stones.

The beautiful antique choker is silver-gilt and dates from the Biedermeier period around 1840.

It is a particularly beautiful necklace that is ideal for traditional costume but also for evening wear.

Matching antique garnet earrings or bracelets can be found in our other items.
