A Month Filled With Garnet Gemstone Jewelry

With the fresh colors of a Demantoid that dazzle to the likes of an emerald, or a deeply saturated yet sensual Rhodolite, you will always be left in awe. Colored by different elements but part of the same species, Garnets come in a spectacular array of colors that will leave you spoilt for choice. From golden greens to mystical oranges and even some elegant reds this garnet gemstone jewelry should be on your list this month. A glorious species of gems, it is also coincidently the Birthstone for the Month of January.

Mandarin Garnets

Our first favorite this year is Mandarin Garnet, the rarest within the Garnet family.


Named after its highly saturated and internally brilliant orange hues, these sunset Spessartite gems have everything you should be looking out for. Durable with poor cleavage, Garnets do not easily break apart when accidentally hit. (An important point to note when buying a gemstone you might wear every day).

Our highly sought after range of handpicked Mandarin Garnets are some of the rarest. With no hints of brown and colored by the element Manganese, these gems all have a valuable reddish orange color. Often presented on the second anniversary, the glowing gems add confidence and are known to awaken creative energy.

Rhodolite Garnet

A popular choice today thanks to its rich hues is the Rhodolite Garnet. Filled with a resplendent purplish red, a fine gem can sometimes be valued even higher than a Spinel.

Vibrant greens were worn to facilitate a change in society. January baby, Oprah Winfrey was one woman who gave a touching speech that urged people to make the change in relation to the Times Up initiative.
