Polished garnet cabechons dangle 2 inches long from a square swirl filigree sterling silver pendant. Faceted and polished garnets form a 28 inch long necklace which attaches via sterling silver lobster clasp and ring. Neck necklace is long enough to place over your head without needing to open and close the clasp. Garnet is the January birthstone and it symbolizes the energy of fire, passion, creativity and strength. The dark maroon red of garnet looks terrifid on those women who wear "summer" colors.
