Red Hot Start to 2022

2022 has arrived and brought the excitement of new beginnings and new adventures with it. The first in the calendar year, January birthdays start off with a warm welcome with its birthstone — the garnet. 

 

How to Style

Garnet comes in a range of hues — from a captivating rust to a beautiful, deep violet red.

From Vikings to 19th Century Europeans, the garnet has been a popular gemstone throughout history. It brings warmth, depth, and a glow to any outfit; a welcome change from the frigid January temperature. Its subtle but mesmerizing tone will catch the eye of any passersby.

 

Meaning

Garnet’s name comes from the 14th century Middle English word gernet, which means “dark red.” This word is derived from Latin garantus, which means “seedlike” — referring to the stone’s similar appearance to red pomegranate seeds. 

The gemstone cultivates serenity and emotional balance, as well as passion and love.
