Garnet - January's Birthstone

Garnet - January's Birthstone

Every month has it's own unique birthstone. Said to reflect the characteristics of the birthday girl / birthday boy a little like a star sign. If you are born in January your birthstone is garnet. 

Garnet - The birthstone for January. A really rather wonderful deep red jewel. Garnet takes it's name from the Latin word “Garanatus,” which means 'seed,' a reference to the pomegranate fruit which the garnet birthstone resembles. Specifically the deep rich red seeds inside.

Although predominantly a deep red stone, the garnet can come in other colours including blue, green, yellow and even black. The stones that we use in our garnet cards and the ribbons are the traditional red garnets, burgundy ribbons or red ribbons.

Garnet represents faith, love and loyalty. Give the gift of a garnet and it is said to strengthen the relationship, love and bond with that person. They are considered to have healing and beneficial properties for the holder. And ultimately symbolise eternal friendship. A Garnet is given as a birthday gift for birthdays that fall throughout the whole month of January.
