The story: Stone of the month of January, garnet is a gemstone that has captivated minds for centuries. Known for its deep red hue reminiscent of pomegranate seeds, it takes its name from the Greek “granatus”. In addition, it is associated with a unique energy that symbolizes love, passion and strength. In addition to garnet, this ring presents a cameo, whose term comes from the Italian “cameo” which has the same origin as the word “camaïeu” (a gradient of colors of the same tone). The first cameos date back to Greece and Ancient Rome. They displayed images of gods and goddesses, heroes, rulers, religious figures and significant events.
