Posted by on Jan 3, 2014 in Blog, Gem Class | No Comments

One of our favorite things about January (besides is marking the start of a new year) is its beautiful birthstone: garnet! This remarkable gemstone has been a staple of jewelry for centuries, adorning the necks of Egyptian pharaohs and embedded in the signet rings of the Romans.

Garnet comes in a wide range of colors and here at Gemvara we offer two spectacular shades of Garnet to customize with. The traditional red garnet, also known in ancient times as “carbuncle,” and the vibrant rhodolite garnet, a rich raspberry hued gemstone. Both garnets are stunning and pair well with any metal type, from silver to rose gold. To help you get started we have included some “insider” tips on January’s birthstone.

January's Birthstone - Rhodolite Garnet

When you are shopping for garnet, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the garnet – the more vivid and bright the color, the more valuable the garnet. Cut is even more important than clarity, since a well-cut garnet will dance with light and because all Gemvara jewelry is made to order, we hand-select fine-quality garnets to perfectly suit your design.

With two shades of garnet to customize in, creating a piece of birthstone jewelry has never been easier. Not to mention you can create with the shade of garnet you love most. How do red garnet and rhodolite garnet inspire you?
