January Birthstone Jewelry

Although we tend to think of January birthstone jewelry as red in color, garnets actually occur in shades of green, orange, yellow, and blue. This gemstone, which symbolizes peace, prosperity, and good health, has a long history. Red garnet necklaces adorned ancient Egyptian pharaohs and were entombed with them for the afterlife. Signet rings made from garnets were used by ancient Romans to seal important documents. This gem was favored by clergy and nobility in the Middle Ages. Jewelry from Bohemia, which featured clusters of tiny red garnets, was popular in the Victorian era. See examples of today’s fashions adorned with vintage garnet jewels.
