These earrings reflect a long tradition of Indonesian metalwork. Two-tone sterling silver with 18-karat gold plate is accented with faceted, deep red garnet stones. The simple filigree pattern is inspired by the profusion of flowers used in Indonesian weddings and other ceremonies.


Handcrafted in Indonesia. 1 1/2"L.


The fiery red gemstone of January, garnet actually describes a range of stones and colors. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans all considered it the traveler's stone for the belief that it could protect the wearer from evil. Although some of the most striking examples are found in Africa, garnet from Bohemia was much in demand during the 18th century, when designs often featured many small stones set in clusters like pomegranate seeds. Today artisans in jewelry-making centers in India, Indonesia, Russia, and elsewhere use garnet—fiery red, earthen brown, and even a brilliant green favored by Tiffany and Fabergé—to create vintage- and ethnically inspired new designs.

Comments about Indonesian Garnet Filigree Earrings:

The earring part of these is beautiful but the hook for your ear was completely and very noticably different on each of the ones I received. Not great when giving as a gift for them not to match.
