Birthstone Earrings - January Garnet
Red garnets were the most popular gemstone in the later years of the Roman Empire. The word ‘garnet’ comes from the Latin word for seedlike, ‘granatus.’ This was a reference to their similar appearance to pomegranate seeds. Another characteristic of garnets is their high refractive index which gives onlookers the impression that the gem is emitting light.
For thousands of years people have worn gemstones to heal, protect and inspire. Garnet in particular is said to awaken and nourish. We selected organic shapes, rough and tumbled stones and pearls to create completely unique pieces. Just like you! Feel the wisdom of the pearls and the properties of your stone and carry that with you as you move through your day. Wear the earrings as pairs or mix and match with your own earrings to create an asymmetrical look.
