Grape Garnet - Otherwise called "Gaganite" - the world's newest gemstone from BMG Jewellery - discovered in 2016.
In early 2016 two Mozambique mines were discovered producing this sparkling garnet in the Cantandica region which is predominantly a coal-mining region. The Tetre mine and Padagaga mine new gemstones have the same luscious colour.
The Padagaga mine is where we purchase our material being the top 10% of production making it the best stones coming from this mine.
The stones are 100% un-treated meaning they are natural without the normal heat or radiation treatments used for most gemstones.
The stone itself is a stunning purple. The refraction index is 1.77 – 1.88 meaning it has a better sparkle than a high-quality Sapphire.
Each nose stud is carefully handmade by one of our expert goldsmiths. Your nose jewellery will be made to your specifications, making this a very personal service.
This ensures the perfect fit for you and is truly worth the wait.
A BMG Nose Stud is very special as it is made to sit into the piercing and not on it, meaning it sits flush to the nose. We pride ourselves in offering the very best in quality, fit and value.
Prices vary depending on the choice of metal.
