Like initial jewellery, gemstone baubles will always have a special place in our hearts—no matter what your birth month is, there’s a gem that’s uniquely yours. And for those of you who are born in January, garnet is the stone to own.
Named after the Medieval Latin word “granatus”, meaning seeds (due to its resemblance to the pomegranate seeds), the stone is not only believed to evoke happiness, it also brings good health and wealth to the wearer—what more could you ask for?
Garnet can be found in a wide range of colours including green, orange, purple, and yellow, but it’s commonly associated with red. Looking to add some birthstone pieces to your jewellery collection? From minimalist-approved pendant necklaces and rings to eye-catching chunky bangles and diamond earrings, our roundup below will have something that you like.
