An impressive accent for an evening out or Sunday brunch. These beautiful sterling silver earrings with garnet stones would have delighted an 18th-century lady. Precious and semiprecious stones, diamonds, rubies, emeralds, topaz, and garnets were as highly prized in the colonial period as they are today. Garnet beads are one of the many items listed for sale in the October, 15, 1772, issue of the Virginia Gazette. Wear these lovely earrings to add an element of sophistication to any day of the week.
