Garnet Forget-me-Not Necklace or Two Bracelets.
A superior necklace of love poesies set with sparkling red, Georgian flat cut, foiled garnets, forms a wreath around the neck, or alternatively separate to make a bracelet for each wrist. The flowers, forget-me-nots, literally mean "I am thinking of you". From the late 1700's through the early 20th century, flowers were symbolic for thoughts of love. Give a gift of a jewel in the form of a flower, and it was giving a love letter. Garnet jewelry, red being the color of passion, was a staple of the Georgian era. The jewels were often in the design of a vine, leaves, or flower garlands. Demand has increased for hand made jewels of this kind, making them more and more rare today. This set is in perfect condition. The stones are in 15kt foiled, closed back settings, (see image 7) and the foiling, links and garnets are in perfect condition. Never too fancy or too plain, this is a Georgian treasure anyone will be happy to own and wear. English in Origin. Superb condition. Necklace 15 1/4 in long. Bracelets each 7 inches long.
