Here is a stunning pair of Bohemian Garnet drop earrings. These earrings are set with rose cut Bohemian Garnets. They are set in a gilded brass with 14k gold filled ear wires. These earrings were converted from a bracelet. I will be converting additional earrings that will be smaller and a ring from the center piece of the bracelet.
Bohemian Garnets get their name from where there are mined, which is now Czech Republic.
Gilded or Gilt brass is brass coated with gold. This is very common in Victorian jewelry making it more affordable to the masses.

Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually. For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
