This brilliant gemstone carrying the air of Victorian Europe has always been admired by the jewellery designers for its excellent hardness that is recorded at 7 to 7.5 at the Mohs scale of hardness.

Third important consideration relates to the device that helps to wear it and take it off. So far as a garnet bracelet is concerned, use of a terminal can be an excellent decision. A terminal is a device that is meant to decorate the open ends of the bracelet and a shank attached to it allows an easy slipping on and off from the bracelet. On the tips of these terminals you can add a couple of small stones of contrast color that would make the piece even more attractive. A clasp can also be used as a device for the same purpose. Only the device should be in harmony with the overall design of the piece. Fourthly, the metal should be chosen with care. Because, the metal is not only meant to accompany the stone but it is the duty of the metal to uphold the beauty of stone. The extra ordinary glow of this stone is most appropriately accompanied by the magnificence of yellow gold. For an antique look, a small proportion of copper can be mixed with the gold. Any white metal like silver is generously used in crafting garnet bracelet. A very interesting option of metal is stainless steel which is being extensively used by the modern designers. Then, In order to add the touch of opulence, you can blend it with small pieces of diamond.
