The January birthstone is garnet, which is known for its red color and for the protection it gives to travelers – ensuring a speedy and safe journey. View our selection of CZ garnet rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and other styles of CZ garnet jewelry.
Garnet, the January birthstone, is one of the oldest birthstones used throughout history. This deep red birthstone has been very abundant during the Victorian era, which led to it being widely used in castles and cathedrals, giving it a bit of a royal vibe. This deep red gemstone is named Garnet after the Latin name for ‘the seed of pomegranate,’ which it resembles in color.
Aside from the royal past and a resemblance to a delicious fruit, CZ garnet rings, necklaces, and other garnet jewelry were given to those about to embark on a long journey. This beautiful red jewelry gift was believed to bring good fortune, protect the wearer, ensure a speedy journey, and bring them home safe and sound.
However, you don’t have to send your loved ones off on a journey to give them a CZ garnet bracelet or pendant – the garnet birthstone is also believed to signify loyalty, kinship, and purity – making it a great gift for those you love and cherish (and would rather keep close to home instead of sending off on a long and dangerous journey – even if it just to the store).
