I love pre-industrial jewelry.  Rough, hand-shaped or tumbled gems set in any way they could manage at the time. For this I was inspired by ancient crown jewels and maybe by a ring in a video game.
The garnets were destined to be beads but hadn’t been reamed yet. I picked out the best and clearest, with the fewest inclusions and hugged each one in their own, fine silver bezel.
