A new year is a time for new beginnings, the opening of a brand new chapter in the story. It seems then oh so fitting that our birthstone for the month of January is the intensely blood red gemstone, garnet. Said to represent the primordial fire from which the creation of the universe was born out of chaos, we could not think of a more positive stone to kickstart the new year with.
The sultry shade of red found in this beautiful gemstone always reminds me of the colour of lipstick worn by the femme fatales in noir detective films and for good reason as garnet is said to be stone of great energy, intimacy, love and passion. So if you’re looking for love in the new year, be sure to slip on that garnet ring on your nights out to give you that extra boost of romantic confidence!
The confidence and passion boosting properties of Garnet however are not only limited to the realm of romance, but is great for pushing you forward and giving you that extra drive in your work life. If you’ve got big goals set for your career in the coming year, Garnet is definitely the stone to get you up and going on them! We’ll certainly be wearing our fair share of garnet this month as we start moving on our big 2019 plans and we look forward to having you join us every step of the way. Happy New Year!
