Birthstone Jewelry Feature: January Garnet

Janice Stiles

At Tres Elegante Designs, it is important to us to share knowledge about the stones, metals, and other amazing materials that go into our fine art jewerly designs. This year, we'll be featuring birthstone jewelry each month, and sharing a little bit about the properties, care recommendations, and historical meanings of each stone!


Garnet is the January birthstone & is usually known for its deep red color, although it actually comes in many colors, including a fiery orange.

While many gemstones are heat or chemically treated to enhance color, garnet is almost always totally natural. Cleaning is easy with just a bit of soapy water. Garnet should not be steam cleaned or used in an ultrasonic cleaner. Keep garnets away from other gems in your jewelry box to avoid scratching and be sure to remove garnet jewelry before using household chemicals.
