Aragon Tears - tears of a Queen - garnet gemstone teardrop necklace
This stunning necklace represents the tears of a Queen - Katherine of Aragon. It is set with 8 teardrop garnets.
The Garnet crystal meaning is rooted in ancient history and comes from the Latin word ‘granatum’, which means pomegranate, also known as Katherine's heraldic symbol.
In a case in the Medieval London gallery at the Museum of London lies a small pewter badge depicting a Tudor rose combined with a pomegranate. These were the heraldic devices of Henry VIII and his first queen, Katherine of Aragon, the Rose and the Pomegranate.
The Garnet crystal was also cherished by early medieval jewelers who incorporated the stone into everything from rings and brooches to buckles and necklaces.
The sterling silver necklace has 8 drop gems and measures 20 inches. It is .925 sterling silver, a very delicate and enchanting piece.
