January's birthstone - Garnet

Posted by on

Garnet, the birthstone for January, can sometimes be seen just as a cheap substitute for Ruby, but it's a really beautiful stone in it's own right.

The name comes from a middle English work for dark red, 'gernet', which itself comes from a latin word for a grain or seed, which is thought to relate to pomegranate seeds.

This gorgeous baguette ring has a rich orangey red garnet from Mozambique.

Although the most well known colour for Garnet is red, fancy versions in colours from purple and pink to bright green and yellow are available, and growing in popularity.

Garnet is thought to stimulate passion and creativity, and even to inspire love. It's a great choice with either gold or silver. 

Garnet is a standard option for most of my stone set rings, send me an email if you would like to check whether it is available with any of my designs.
