Happy New Year…and happy birthday to January babies!

Garnet is the birthstone for January, a gemstone found most commonly in red, but available in a wide range of other colors. Symbolizing peace, prosperity and good health, the garnet is believed to possess the power to give its wearer eternal happiness, health and wealth. It is the perfect stone to represent new beginnings and the start of the New Year.

You’ll find gifts featuring this beautiful winter gemstone in a variety of looks throughout our stores.

For the traditionalist celebrating a birthday in January, classic stud earrings from Getana & CO. are a great addition to her jewelry collection. Featuring a round red garnet center stone, these earrings are surrounded by a diamond halo setting. Crafted in 14K yellow gold, they are elegant in their simplicity.

If a ring is more her thing, we have two beautiful options:

A gorgeous Rhodolite garnet, a lighter stone with a more red-purple colored refection than the typical garnet gemstone. The round stone is bezel and prong set in 14K white gold with diamonds surrounding the center stone and cascading down the sides of the shank.

Famed for its fiery red-orange color and its wonderful brilliance, the mandarin garnet makes for a gift as unique as the birthday girl herself! This ring features a 3.85ct pear-shaped mandarin garnet that is prong set with diamonds in a halo style.

If a something to frame her lovely face is your choice, we have a necklace everyone would love to own:

For a thoroughly modern interpretation of the January birthstone, a handmade drop necklace from NYC designer Ela Rae. This sterling silver and gold plate necklace combines moonstone and pyrite with the garnet to create a contemporary piece with a decidedly vintage bohemian vibe.
