The garance flower blooms in France across the fields of Provence. It’s small red blooms are grouped in joyous bundles at the tips of long green stems. The deep red petals were used by traditional artisans in the textile industry, to create natural dyes. Not only the Gauls, but also the Vikings, Romans, and ancient Indus Valley civilisations used the Garance flower to stain their clothes red, for religious and aristocratic attire. The oldest surviving example comes from the grave of the Merovingian queen Arnegundis, who was buried in what is today Paris, in robes dyed this classic rouge. The Garance Ring is an ode to craftsmanship of all kinds, with its red garnet stone set in our Florentine studios, by hand. Pictured here in 14k solid gold.
