January Color of the Month: Garnet Red

January Color of the Month: Garnet Red

It won't surprise you to hear that the jewelry color of the month is the same as the birthstone, the deep red of garnet.  Providing a stunning contrast to the grey skies and white, snow-bound land, garnet gives us a spark in the long winter month of January.

Fire and Ice

Nothing is more dramatic than mixing the color of the month with pearl for a true fire-and-ice combination.  These earrings give the appearance of snow on fire with the mother of pearl drop under garnet Swarovski Austrian crystals.

Garnet Gemstone: More Than Just a Birthstone

Garnet Gemstone: More Than Just a Birthstone

The Garnet gemstone is the birthstone of January. The stone is a group of minerals that comes in a rainbow of colors ranging from a deep red/orange of the Mandarin Garnet to a green color of the Tsavorite and the usually recognized Pyrope Garnet. It can be given for the second, sixth, and nineteenth wedding anniversaries and it symbolizes eternal friendship and trust. The name comes from the Latin word granatum meaning "seed-like" referencing it to a pomegranate because of it's looks and color. The garnet gemstone is an interesting stone in terms of history, legends, and Greek mythology.

8 Things You Didn’t Know About the Garnet

Thinking about garnet birthstone jewelry for yourself or a loved one? Discover why this enchanting gem is much more than a January jewel.

  1. Over the centuries, garnets were believed to prevent and cure blood disorders and infections as well as stop bleeding, relieve skin inflammation, and ease depression.
  2. The name garnet has several possible origins, including from Old French (grenat) and Medieval Latin (granatum) meaning "of dark red color," or perhaps from the word pomegranate due to its resemblance to the shape of the seeds or the color of the pulp. It may also be from Medieval Latin granum "grain," in its sense of "cochineal, red dye."

January Birthstone Article - Garnet and Auld Lang Syn

January Birthstone Article - Garnet and Auld Lang Syn

January’s birthstone is garnet, a stone with an inner fire that defies even the coldest winter days. And the month of January is filled with those. January is named for Janus, the two faced Roman God of beginnings, endings, gates and doors. This is because January pays tribute to the year just past and harbingers the journeys we’ll make into the New Year.
