Garnet Rings & Jewelry: January Birthstone

Garnet jewelry symbolizes many things: friendship, trust, and safe travels. References to the garnet gemstone date back to 3100 B.C., when ancient Egyptians used garnet stones as inlays in their jewelry. Thousands of years later, garnet is still in style. Known for its beautiful deep red hue, its name is derived from "granatum", meaning seed - because of how much it resembles the seed of a pomegranate, matching it in color.
