For those who are celebrating a birthday in January, platinum birthstone jewelry featuring garnet, the stone of loyalty, eternal friendship and trust, would be a terrific gift for a dedicated friend. Derived from the Latin word for “seed” due to their resemblance to the gem-like treasures within pomegranates, garnets actually occur in every color imaginable but are most commonly found in hues of red, orange, yellow, and green.
Garnet is said to protect from physical wounds and amplify faith, consistency, and honesty, as well as feelings of affection and bravery. They are generally viewed as tokens of healing in both the earthly and spiritual realms.
