Legends, Lores and Meanings of Garnets, January's Birthstone

A few known facts about Garnets

When I think about the silver jewelry that I import from around the world my most favorite of all pieces are the ones that have Gemstones in them. The shape, colors, and facets are what brings that special piece of Jewelry to life.

As the famous gemologist G.F. Kunz noted in his book, The Curious Lore of Precious Stones “There is no doubt that the owner of a ring or ornament set with a birthstone is impressed with the idea of possessing something more intimately associated with his or her personality than any other stone, however beautiful or costly. The idea that birthstones possess a certain indefinable, but nonetheless real significance has long been present and still holds a spell over the minds of all who are gifted with a touch of imagination and romance.”

A few known facts about Garnets

The Birthstone for January is Garnet. It is also the Gemstone celebrated for the 2nd and 6th Wedding Anniversary.

Garnet is derived from the Latin word granum meaning grain. It has been widely known and used for thousands of years and were worn by Greeks, Egyptians and Romans.

Garnet can be any color except for blue.

Legend tells us:

Garnets were used by travelers for protection because they believed the Garnet would illuminate the night and protect them from evil.

Healing and properties of Garnet:

It is said that Garnet is the stone of passionate devotion. To your family, your friends, yourself, and your purpose or goals.

Garnet will stimulate the senses, and increase your vitality and stamina.

Helps to become motivated and productive, and attracts good luck in business ventures.

Garnet is known as the stone for a successful business and makes a wonderful executive gem, particularly for women.

It is said it to be of help for arthritis, pancreas, and varicose veins.

Note to myself: I think I may need to wear this stone!!

I'm in love with all of the unique, one of a kind jewelry pieces that I now have from Double Dragon Jewelry! I admit it...I am now addicted to Cindy's collections. I just received my latest shipment from one of those monthly stylist companies. In this month's box was a necklace. One look at it and I knew I was returning it. I have become spoiled by Cindy's jewelry and am so excited to continue growing my small collection of her pieces!

This is the 3rd or 4th time I have ordered from Double Dragon Jewelry and once again I wasn't disappointed. The bracelet was just like it showed in the picture and the delivery was super fast. I would highly recommend Double Dragon Jewelry to anyone who likes sterling silver jewelry.

Dear Cindy, dear double dragon costumers and surfers,
I live in Italy and since I can't afford travelling, but I'm fond of jewellery from other parts of the world, I subscribed the newsletter last summer. Surprislingly at Christmas I found out I was the winner of the snowflake earrings and I was very pleased of that! As soon as I received them my daughters asked me to wear them and I still haven't had the oppotunity of doing it, but I'm sure I will!
They are lovely and finely made.

After months of searching for a specific pair of earrings for a friend, I found Cindy's site. The earrings were virtually identical to the ones we had stolen (in fact we all thought they were better finished than the original.) They were absolutely beautiful, she was ecstatic). I found Cindy to be totally honest, the product true to photos, postage well within time allowance & just an all around positive experience using this site. I would highly recommend shopping here, in fact I will be purchasing the same earrings for my sister who fell in love with these. Do yourself a favour, rather than being taken, on some of those Chinese sites, shop here.

My girlfriend loves sterling silver jewelry and Double Dragon Jewelry has an excellent selection to choose from and with very reasonable prices. I would also like to say that that they are a very friendly and honest company to deal with. I will definitely order from them again.

Carolyn    February 10, 2016   

This shop is absolutely amazing! I love to look through this website and always find something I fall in love with, and I have adored every piece I have purchased. The personal service, the quality of the jewellery and the quick delivery is second to none. This is without a doubt, one of my favourite places to shop. Thank you Cindy, you have a customer for life!

Jackie McAvoy    January 5, 2016   

This company is awesome and so is the lady who owns it! This is an honest and trustworthy Co that you can feel good about ordering from. I do have to say when I first saw all of the jewelry I wore gold only. I have never worn silver. That has all changed since I was turned on to these gorgeous jewels & silver from all over the worldl
