Garnet Shield Earrings
Shield Earrings with garnet for added protection.
Garnets have been associated with protection and courage since ancient times. The Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans considered it the ‘warrior stone’ because of its blood-red hue and carried it in battle. Garnet was also chosen to decorate the swords and armor of powerful leaders.
In old traditions, garnets have been said to provide protection and guidance on difficult journeys. Garnets were gifted to traveling friends and family to ensure safe travels and a safe return home. Not only does it ensure a safe return, but it symbolizes a coming back into oneself. An ideal stone for people entering new realms.
Garnet is a great stone for setting boundaries, ridding yourself of toxic habits, relationships, and other self-destructive tendencies. It is said to help sharpen our perception of ourselves and of others, so we can shed what no longer serves us. Particularly powerful during tough times, it is the perfect stone to create healthy boundaries, to step into a renewed sense of self, and to encourage the warrior within.
