Almandine Garnet Etruscan Brooch in 14k *Include yellow velvet ribbon*
Many 19th-century jewelers, the most famous being the House of Castellani, were inspired to create their own versions of these ancient pieces, hence “Etruscan Revival.” Characteristics of Etruscan style jewelry include the use of high karat gold and semi-precious stones and, most distinguishingly, the use of intricate filigree work.
Working with the Root Chakra, Almandine Garnet keeps us deeply rooted, and therefore psychically protected, as it is difficult for negative energies to attach to us when we are authentically grounded, and rooted.
This gorgeous brooch example features seven delicious almandine garnet stones and a dainty center pearl. The texture of the warm gold details is super special and makes this piece stand out. A stunning addition to any collection and any look.
