Wild Heart Charm Bangle
“The. Perfect. Studs. Dress them up or down.”
The word garnet is derived from the Latin word granatus meaning “grain” or “seed”. Legend says that Noah hung a large garnet in the ark for illumination. It is believed that the garnet gives the wearer guidance in the night and protection from nightmares. According to the ancient Egyptians, it is an anecdote for snakes bites and food poisoning. Garnet jewelry has been dated all the way back to the bronze age. Anyone who is subject to depression should carry a garnet with them as it encourages joy, willpower and hope while its beautiful fiery red color drives away tiredness and stimulates the imagination.
It has many names – trapeze, column, bar, matchstick, line drop; it has many admirers – Drew Barrymore, Blake Lively, Rihanna, and Jessica Alba – just to name a few; and it’s hotter than liquid gold in the metal room. It’s the bar necklace. And we can’t get enough.
Consider it a step up from ID tags. The delicate, yet statement motif can be kept classically plain, engraved for a personal touch, or bejeweled for mega effect. It can be worn with any outfit, for any occasion – going from red-carpet-ready to weekly-grocery- store-trek without much effort.
“The bar necklace is in line with a lot of other popular trends like layering, minimalism, and the geometric look. It’s a trending item that can work for a variety of customers and price points.”
– Lauren Garvey, Diamond & Gem Product Manager
Now, let’s talk options – a girl’s gotta have ’em right? And while you may think there isn’t much you can do to spice up a straight line, we’d be happy to prove you wrong.
While the classic horizontal, straight bar looks fantastic by itself, you could add a diamond, gemstone, or even engraving to make the look your own.
Rotate that baby 90º clockwise for a chic vertical look. And adding stones, whether they are of the diamond or gem variety, is always a good idea.
For a more modern look, opt for a wave, a curve, multiple layers, or even a little extra metallic flair.
