What better way to start off the new year with buying some jewelry for you or a loved one at DiamondWave.com?
January, the month of the Garnet, is one of our most beloved and cherished birthstones. Pleasing to the eye, Garnets come mostly from African countries, but also from India, Russia, Central and South America. They usually come in a deep red variation, but can sometimes come in variations of green, yellow, orange, and earthy tones. Garnets tend to change color during daylight or in artificial light, therefore making them even more sought after.
Here are some fun facts:
1. The origin of the name garnet is derived from the Greek word "granatum" meaning "pomegranate seed" which reflects the shape and color of the crystals.
2. The symbolism associated with garnets is as follows: Purity, Truth, Faithfulness and Friendship.
3. Garnets are also the Wedding anniversary gemstone and are given as gifts for the 2nd year of marriage.
