Tiny Brass Taliswoman Earrings with Raw Garnets (January BIRTHSTONE)
Our January birthstone is GARNET, and once again we have some lovely gemstones to use in our earrings and necklaces!
These small earrings are eye-catching, lightweight and powerful! The raw Garnets are suspended from our smallest-sized, oxidized and hammered brass bails with Sterling Silver wires for subtle contrast, allowing the crystals to gently swing in place as you move around. What I love about these are how petite they are!
Garnet, known as the pomegranate stone, is revered for its connections to creativity and love, symbolizing courage and positive thinking, especially through its historical narratives from Noah's Ark to Ancient Greece's tale of Persephone. The healing properties of Garnet are extensive, offering physical healing by enhancing sexual energy, flushing out toxins, and improving circulation, alongside mental and emotional healing by fostering self-confidence, nurturing relationships, and promoting a positive outlook. Garnet is associated with the first Chakra which is known as the Root Chakra. Located at the base of your spine, this chakra is associated with survival, security, stability and physical energy. Red Garnet is also associated with the second, or Sacral, Chakra. This chakra is located below your navel along the lower area of your stomach. The second chakra is associated with sensuality and sexuality, reproduction, desire, emotions and creativity.
On average, the Garnets are 3/8" tall x 5/16" wide. The Tiny Brass bails are about 1/2" tall so these will hang, on average, 1 1/4" from the Sterling Silver earwires to the bottoms of the Garnets.
*Due to the varying nature of Raw Garnets, the pair you receive may look slightly different than what you see pictured here- but we buy them in batches and do our best to match all for their size, shape and clarity!
