Garnet, the birthstone of January, is mined in a rainbow of colours. From the fiery orange of Mandarin Garnet to the rich green of Tsavorite Garnet and to the most widely recognized colour of Pyrope Garnet, it is considered a great gift to symbolize friendship and trust.
I asked team members what items they have in their shops that would make great garnet gifts for January birthdays …. here’s what they said:
oooohhhhh I love experimenting with colour and you had me the moment you said rainbow! It is fascinating that one stone can be manifest so differently.
One of my drawings includes orange, red and green combined in a swirl of rainbows:
I love the deep, dark red of a garnet stone, it’s such a powerful and passionate colour that is also grounding. I wanted to create a dreamcatcher in this same mood, using a strong colour palette that was almost hypnotising like a flame, I hope that’s the effect this piece has!
This poster not only highlights the beautiful colors of the garnet but displays the symbols of love, friendship and truth valued by those of us born under the star sign Aquarius.
I have combined pink quartz and peruvian opal with garnet gemstones in this delicate necklace.
I love Garnet, it’s a beautiful gemstone. These are beautiful natural garnet cabochon gemstones, they are a great garnet colour and look lovely attached to the sterling silver beaded ear wires.
