My mother was married November 10, 1941. They were married at her mother's home. Her father died when she was 18. The doctor who had delivered her gave her away. He was an old family friend.

What a lovely gem! Is it a garnet? That was my grandmother's birthstone and I have several pieces of hers. Love it.

It is a royally regal bauble to be sure.

Yes, it is a garnet. I love the fire in the depth of the stone. It isn't my birth stone, but I have always loved them. My grandmother and mother both were January and had garnets, but I am February and do love amethysts. I have some, but I have more garnets. They were usually worn in sets in Victorian times.
