Dream catchers were traditionally made by native american cultures using a willow hoop with a woven net or web and included sacred items such as feathers or beads. They were hung over babies cribs for protection and it was also believed that dream catchers would protect babies and children from nightmares by trapping them in their webs while dreams would flow right through.
Perfect as a gift for a loved one or a little treat for yourself.
All Silver Scene jewellery comes lovingly packaged in a gift box.
About the stone
Garnet is the Birthstone for January and the horoscope stone for Scorpio.
The word ‘garnet’ is derived from the Latin “granatum” which means seed, and is called so because of the gemstone’s resemblance to the red seeds of the pomegranate.
Garnet has had a place in history for centuries as a gemstone, talisman or sacred stone. It is so durable, remnants of garnet jewellery can be found as far back as the Bronze Age.
Garnet is known as the stone of commitment. It inspires love and devotion, balances the sex drive and alleviates emotional disharmony. It is said to be a useful stone to have in a crisis as it fortifies and activates survival instinct, bringing courage and hope. Square-cut garnets are said to bring success to business matters. Garnets are also known to symbolise deep and lasting friendship.
