January Birthstone Jewellery

Those born in the month of January have the pleasure of enjoying garnet as their birthstone. Garnet is best known for its deep, rich red colour and is found all over the world, including here in Australia. 

Garnet carries with it many associations, particularly the ancient Greek myth of Hades and Persephone. The myth whispers that garnets owe their fiery colour to Persephone, goddess of spring. Abducted by Hades, she was tricked into eating pomegranate seeds, binding her to the underworld. Yet, her love for the sun led to a deal: a shared existence between light and darkness, birthing the seasons. The Latin word for pomegranate, “granatum,” echoes in the name of these captivating gemstones, forever reminding us of their mythical origin. 

From a metaphysical perspective, garnet sharpens the mind and the intuition, allowing a sharper, more truthful perception of oneself and other people. It helps you to let go of obsolete ideas and to open your mind to new ways of seeing the world, which can be especially beneficial to anyone who feels stuck in a rut of feelings or behaviour that is no longer bringing them joy or happiness.
