A lovely heart shaped 15ct gold tie pin that has been set with a green garnet and two natural split pearls. The proper name for this stone is a demantoid garnet. Although garnets have been known since ancient times, the demantoid variety was not discovered until 1868 in Russia’s western central Ural Mountains. Miners were immediately stunned by the highly refractive nature of the gem material. They began comparing it to diamond and referred to it as “demantoid”, from the French “demant” meaning diamond. These bright apple green stones are comparatively rare and very expensive and were popular during the Edwardian period so they were used in all types of jewellery. All our tie pins come with a stopper at the end of the pin.
