January's Birthstone

The Splendor of Garnets: A journey through Color, History, & Mystery

Alright, let's dive into the enchanting world of Garnet, the superstar of January birthdays! Imagine a gem so cool that it's been a hit since the days of the Pharaohs. That's garnet for you – a stone that's not just a pretty face but a symbol of lasting friendship and trust.

And here's a quirky fact: garnets are like chameleons! Some actually change colors under different lighting. Imagine wearing a classy gem that could bring you color-altering fun throughout the day. Garnets aren’t just stones; they're storytellers, each one with a tale as rich and deep as their color. 

Garnets are quite hard, ranking 6.5 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale, which makes them suitable for everyday wear. So, January folks, wear your garnet with pride – it’s not just a birthstone, it's a piece of cosmic art! Plus, wearing one is said to bring health, wealth, and happiness. 

Come see our extensive collection of loose garnet stones you can build your dream piece with, including rare varieties such as Tsavorite (green), Malaya (lychee pink), and Mandarin Spessartite (orange) as well as our classics like Almandine (red) and Rhodolite (purple red). We also have beautiful, finished pieces in our showcase.  🎆♥️✨
