Originating in the Bohemian region of Central Europe, particularly in what is now the Czech Republic, this style of jewelry gained popularity during the Victorian era and reached its zenith in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Bohemian garnets are a type of pyrope garnet, characterized by their deep red color, often with hints of purple or brown. These gemstones were mined extensively in Bohemia, which is why they became associated with the region. The garnets were typically small, allowing jewelers to create intricate designs that showcased their vibrant color. During the late 19th century, Bohemian garnet jewelry experienced a surge in popularity due to the rise of mass production techniques and increased accessibility. It became fashionable across Europe and America, adorning the attire of both the wealthy elite and the middle class. Here, a rare treat: the bracelet remained paired with its original box.
