From ancient royalty to medieval clergy, garnets have been a favorite in jewelry since around the time jewelry was invented. And to this day, while most people recognize garnets in their brilliant cut form - after all, their name comes from the Latin word for pomegranate...
This gem is one of the best-kept secrets for those who love bold color.
Their vibrant colors and overall hardiness has made garnets a popular precious stone since the Bronze Age (long before they were January's birthstone).
While warm soapy water is generally safe, other cleaning methods can damage garnets - so it's best to bring your garnets in for a complimentary professional cleaning from time to time.
Whether you're shopping for a January birthday gift or just looking to add a pop of color to your jewelry box, an heirloom piece of garnet jewelry is the timeless answer.
