Bohemian Garnets were at the height of their popularity in the 19th century Victorian era. Today's antique jewelry connoisseurs still favor bohemian garnet jewelry for the fire and intensity of its blood red garnets and its timeless romanticism.

Garnets mined in Bohemia are of the variety called pyrope (from the Greek words pyr for "fire" and ops for "eye"). The Bohemian garnet's color ranges from fiery-red to ruby-red. This rare, high quality garnet is only found in the Central Bohemia region of northern Czech Republic.
