The history of Garnet

Garnets are named after their beautiful deep red colour, derived from the 14th century Middle English word gernet which means ‘dark red’. This word actually comes from the Latin term granatum which means ‘seed’ and speaks to the red seeds of the pomegranate.

Garnets have been used in jewellery dating back to the Bronze Age, with archaeologists uncovering red garnet inlays in jewellery in Egyptian Pharaoh tombs dating back to 3100 BCE. They were also popular throughout ancient Rome and Greece during the third and fourth centuries, where they were carved and adorned on signet rings.

Revered by the ancients for its protective properties, Garnet was used as a talisman for warriors entering battle and to ward off pests and illness. A collection of Anglo-Saxon artefacts from the 6th and 7th century was discovered in Staffordshire, England in 2019, including 3,500 pieces of Garnet inlay jewellery and weapons.
