January - Garnet (The 2020 Birthstone Collection)

January – Garnet

 

Not all garnets are red, but red garnets, which are the most common, can be found in metamorphic rocks on every continent.

 

Ancient Romans used signet rings with carved garnets to stamp the seal of important documents.

 

By her who in this month (January) is born

No gem save garnets should be worn;

They will ensure her constancy,

True friendship, and fidelity. (An 1870 pamphlet published by Tiffany & Co).

 

Birthstones are not only fun and nostalgic, but throughout our lives they serve as a beautiful reminder of the month when we were born. The history behind birthstones is fascinating, with origins that date back to the Old Testament and Aaron’s breastplate, which featured 12 gemstones that represented the 12 tribes of Israel.

 

Over time, the 12 gems eventually became associated with the zodiac. Then, in 1912, the National Association of Jewelers established the modern list of birthstones we know today.
