Red Red Wine - Estate Sterling Silver Garnet Filigree Ring. This gorgeous ring is crafted from sterling silver, hallmarked 925. Featuring one natural round cut faceted garnet, Edwardian Revival styling, and quality craftsmanship. The expertly claw- set garnet in this ring has the most beautiful deep red wine color, which is surrounded by a gallery of  filigree leading down to a polished and smooth shank, which allows for a comfortable fit, and easy sizing. The Edwardian Revival ring is rich and elegant, truly a perfect gift or addition to any jewelry collection. 

The history of garnet dates back to the Bronze Age, more than 5000 years ago. Its name, which has been used since these ancient times, was derived from the Latin word granatium, which means pomegranate (because the small, red crystals were thought to resemble pomegranate seeds).

The story of silver mining began about 5,000 years ago. Silver was first mined around 3,000 BCE in Anatolia, now located in modern-day Turkey. The precious metal helped early civilizations in the Near East, Ancient Greece to flourish.                                                  

The term "sterling silver" probably originated in eastern Germany when five towns formed the Hanseatic League in the 1100s. These town minted their own coins of 92.5 percent silver. When Britain sold cattle and grain to the League, they were paid in "Easterling coins".
