Product information "EDLER ALMANDIN"

Wine red to red-violet, almandine was already being used for 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 that is characterized by the power to make the wearer invisible.

This beautiful garnet bracelet consists of three strands of garnet that nestle around the lady's hand.

Each individual almandine was painstakingly threaded and knotted by hand.

The clasp is set with a magnificent large almandine with a richly faceted cut. The clasp is reminiscent of a flower with a large garnet in the middle.

The beautiful antique bracelet is silver-gilt and probably dates from the late Biedermeier period around 1850/60.

It is a particularly beautiful bracelet that is ideal for traditional costume but also for evening wear!

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