January's Birthstone is Garnet
January’s birthstone, garnet, is named after the pomegranate, as its color resembles the red seeds found within the fruit.
Believed to be a source of protection, garnet was used as a talisman during times of war and illness. Healers would place a garnet stone on a wound for its healing powers. Garnet is also said to bring its wearers happiness, good health, confidence, and peace of mind.
Pair this beautiful birthstone with our brand new legacy signet ring, engraved with important initials or a custom design. We love the idea of mimicking garnet’s namesake, the pomegranate, by using several smaller stones to create one statement piece, such as in the birthstone bracelet, featuring all garnet.
There are so many unique ways to update your VCS heirloom with a birthstone that represents special birthdays or anniversaries. Our customers love using our Birthstone Jumprings as a way to add a little color and a lot of meaning to their charms.
Whether you're celebrating a January birthday or anniversary or are just a fan of the stone, we are honored to work with you to create your unique garnet birthstone jewelry. Trust us with your story and allow us to create heirloom pieces you will be proud to wear.
