Valentine’s Day is less than a month away! That’s means it’s far from too early to start thinking about how you’re going to show that special woman in your life just how much she means to you. And, a piece of garnet jewelry that features a heart-shaped gemstone may be the perfect place to begin your search for that perfect way to say “be my Valentine.”
All garnets display that color of love in rich, sparkling fashion, and when a garnet is cut into the shape of the heart—the instantly-recognizable symbol of affection—its ability to communicate your adoration is magnified. For example, the Vintage Filigree Garnet Heart Ring in 14K White Gold showcases a stunning 10mm heart-shaped garnet and surrounds it with a setting that seems to emulate a sense of romance. This style harkens back to the Victorian Era with its meticulously-crafted design of flowers and swirls, giving it a look that’s feminine yet bold as it upholds this style’s glittering crimson centerpiece.
The Heart-Shaped Garnet and Baguette Ring in 14K White Gold provides a more contemporary way to wear a heart-shaped garnet as it showcases a 5mm heart-shaped center stone, hugged between two baguette-cut cubic zirconia stones. A simple polished band of 14K white gold provides the perfect foundation.
If you’d prefer to give the color and symbol of love in a pair of garnet earrings, try the Heart-Shaped Garnet and Diamond Earrings. This pair puts two 5mm heart-shaped garnets on display, allowing them to drop elegantly below tiny diamonds.
Any of these pieces could serve as a lovely way to tell that special someone that she has captured your heart and that she’s the one who makes it sparkle. These garnet styles express your love with both their color and their symbolic shape.
