Garnet Finds for January Birthdays: Platinum Birthstone Jewelry

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.
