“By her who is this month was born
No gem save garnets shall be worn
They will ensure her constancy
True friendship and fidelity.”
January Birthstone poem – the Garnet

Garnets are a symbol of love and compassion so Garnet jewelry makes a wonderful gift. Garnet is the birth stone for January and represents the 2nd year of marriage.
