Antique Victorian Bohemian Garnet Jewelry

Garnet as a gemstone had its heyday in the Victorian era when other dark "anti-gems" such as pyrite and jet were also popular. Garnets were thought to be a malady for blood disorders or anger. Pyrope is the name of the deep red, orange-red or purplish garnet. The major source of garnet gems from the Renaissance through the Victorian Era were the "Bohemian " pyrope deposits in the vicinity of Trebenice, Czechoslovakia, thus the name Bohemian garnets.

Bohemian Garnets are real garnets (often imitated in glass) that were mined from a certain mountain region in Bohemia, now long exhausted of its garnets, never to be found again. They are characterized by their intensely rich deep red color.

Today's garnets range mostly in the lighter orange reds to watery reds and come mostly from India. Garnets are very plentiful today but the quality of Bohemian garnets has never been matched.

Today the most sought after gem garnets are the rare green variety of andradite called demantoid. The most important garnet deposit in the U.S. is at Gore Mountain in New York.

Below are some wonderful examples of antique Victorian Bohemian garnet jewelry and Czechoslovakian Bohemian garnet jewelry.
