January - Garnet Jewelry
Garnet, the January birthstone, was a favorite gem of the Victorian era. It’s rich purplish-red color looked stunning in candlelight with the sumptuous fabrics worn during that era. The name comes from the Latin term granatus, which means pomegranate and is a reference to its lush color. While we generally think of garnet as being a warm purplish-red, some garnets are more pink, while other varieties are orange or even a vivid green. It is a stone that requires no enhancement. Garnet is found in many places in Africa as well as India, Brazil, and Sri Lanka.
