In the middle ages, garnet was commonly believed to guard against poison. Royals would often drop a garnet gemstone into a glass of wine to ensure they were not poisoned to death. Not sure that's the best use of a garnet any more! For more information on the January birthstone, feel free to visit Fire Mountain Gems.
For January gift ideas, I have created several sets of necklace pendants and earrings with the garnet color in mind. Enjoy my jewelry shop and order custom color jewelry as a gift or for yourself! Thanks!
