Garnets were named by the ancient Greeks for their color which resembled pomegranate seed - granatum. In legend, the garnet was believed to light up the night. With associations with the heart, blood, inner fire, and life force, garnets have long been considered a symbol of love. Le Vian® selected a unique hue for its Pomegranate Garnet™, those brilliant gems with a rich red tone with a slight umber undertone.
