The Wollem Prague Garnet Collection
For a start let’s state that this is not guaranteed to be Czech Garnet and in most cases it will be African Pyrope Garnet from Mozambique (same dark red colour). The collection is based around Garnet or Diamond Garnet set into 18 carat rose gold and each individual piece of the collection has it’s own name. The collection breaks down into 4 main parts:
The Wollem collection includes single band or multi-band rings with unique designs. The simplest design is called Ethrel with it’s single scaled line of garnets. Going up in price you’ve got a similar ring called “Hellen” but just a little bit wider to allow for diamond settings either side of the garnets. High-end in the rings section would be what they call “Leal” which is a delicate 4 band ring (3 bands of garnet with a spacer and a band of diamonds – pictured).
For the coordinated look then the “Hellen” ring mentioned above combined with the “Hellen” pendant is a perfect choice. If you want to go mad on the budget then the “Hellen” pendant also goes with the “Char” fixed bracelet. The pendant pictured here is called “Yuivae” where the diamonds are physically separated from the Garnet. Very eye-catching with any V-neck clothing. The Wollem design having rose gold with the dark red Pyrope garnet really gives a sense of warmth.
The Wollem collection includes both gold chain and clip bracelets. I guess my favourite clip bracelets are “Nora” which bucks the regular Wollem trend for having only dark red Pyrope garnet and in this case introduces a mix of red and green. But far and away for just pure beauty and elegant design it has to be “Char” (pictured above at the beginning of the post). In the gold chain section “Vivian” wins it for me with scaled garnet interspersed with concentric rings of diamonds (pictured).
I’m no expert here but again the “Hellen” earings are looking pretty good (pictured). If you are looking to mix in the green garnet then as well as the “Nora” bracelet consider the “Callie” long drop ear rings.
Wollem is not a huge collection and in fact if you see it in the shop it barely fills two display counters but a tremendous amount of work goes into sourcing the materials to maintain consistency so you are getting high-end and uniquely designed jewellery.
