Our demantoid garnet stud earrings feature another one of our favourite types of garnet.

Demantoid garnet is the green variety of andradite and is very rare. It has a very high refractive index meaning it has a similar play of colour to diamonds. It is also slightly magnetic due to the iron content.

Garnet in general is very rarely treated so the colour and clarity of garnet is all natural. It is a relatively soft stone with roughly the same hardness as glass. It’s best used in a pendant, earrings or cocktail (occasional wear) ring.

Garnet is also the birthstone for January. While we have nothing against the traditional red garnet (usually referred to as a Mozambique garnet), we do find it’s over represented in traditional birthstone jewellery. Our goal is to offer something a little different!

Care Instructions:

Gold does not tarnish so it’s not necessary to use commercial cleaners.

If a build up develops under the setting resulting in the stones looking less brilliant, simply take a soft tooth brush, dip it in some warm soapy water and proceed to scrub away the dirt/build-up under the setting.

It’s best not to wear these earrings in a pool, spa or hot tub to prevent exposure to harsh chemicals.
