January Birthstone - Garnet
January Birthstone - Garnet information
We think January’s birthstone should be the next in vogue gem as it sits well alongside the passion for hygge and self care. Garnet has powers to bring good health to the home and the wearer and it even protects a traveller while they are away from home.
“By her who in January was born
No gem save garnets shall be worn
They will ensure her constancy
True friendship and fidelity.”
– Gregorian Birthstone Poem
Garnet is usually known for its deep red colour, similar to rubies. However, it can be found in bright colours from orange to green. It's name means “seedlike” as it looks like a shiny pomegranate seed.
It is essentially perfect for January – the month of new beginnings and resolutions – as Garnet will reward you for your positive actions!
We have a few pieces below that already feature the beautiful Garnet stone, but as our jewellery is handmade to order, all our gem-set pieces can be custom made for you with a Garnet instead of whatever stone is currently in place - and mostly at little or no extra cost - just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your bespoke request.
