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.”


What I find best of all are the special Gemstone properties that ignite powerful healing upon holding, wearing, or using in grids. I myself have been very fortunate in experiencing this.

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 have been buying jewelry from Cindy for several years now. Since she buys from all over the world the variety is endless & her jewelry is stunning and well-made. If you love Silver and you can't find what you are looking for at the Double Dragon then you probably don't need it! Cindy sells jewelry from her heart so her service has always been second to none!
