Arabesque Ring with Garnet
The so-called "whiplash line" is one of the defining hallmarks of the Art Nouveau style. Here, the whiplash curves in a graceful arabesque around a sparkling gemstone and entwines around your finger. The Arabesque Ring is dainty and elegant when worn alone; but this slender stacking ring is designed to nestle closely with one or more accompanying bands.
This sparkly garnet and sterling silver ring is handcrafted and made to order. Wear it by itself, or customize a stack of skinny bands and coordinating gemstone rings - the possibilities to mix and match are endless.
Garnets have been used throughout history to adorn kings and nobility, from the pharaohs of Egypt to the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons. Prized in Victorian jewelry, they were sometimes used in engagement rings to symbolize fidelity.
The name 'garnet' comes from the Greek word granatum, meaning pomegranate seed - evoking the tale of the pomegranate given to Persephone by Hades before she left his domain. Thus the stone is associated with lovers, fertility and feminine life force, and symbolizes a quick return to a separated love, or healing the broken bonds of love. A garnet stone is often gifted to a loved one before they embark on travel.
Garnet is January's birthstone, as well as the traditional gift for second wedding anniversaries.
