These Victorian earrings feature Bohemian garnets which are known and prized for their fiery red color. These garnets are mined exclusively in the mountains of the Bohemian empire, which is now part of the Czech Republic. In addition to their deep red color, Bohemian garnets have superior clarity and light refraction. This type of cluster style setting is what Victorian Bohemian garnet jewelry is known for; the characteristic setting style where emphasis is placed on the arrangement of the stones with very little metal showing in between the stones. These earrings are made for non pierced ears, but could easily be converted to pierced studs!
