To all our January babies, your traditional birthstone is Garnet. Natural Garnet has many hidden benefits for those born in January but also for all who use or wear it. Read on to find out more!
A little bit of history...
The word “garnet” comes from the 14th century Middle English word granatum, which carries the meaning “dark red,” and is derived from Latin granatum, which means “seed” as the gemstone also embellishes the resemblance to the red seeds of the pomegranate.
The Meaning Behind Garnet
Enriched with a deep red colour, like that of a pomegranate, the Garnet Stone ensures success, symbolises consistency, and will keep the wearer safe from harm.
Garnet is known for its rich red colour, however, it can also be found in green, yellow, and purple.

Why do we love this stone?
Here at Indie and Harper, we love these natural gemstones for their beautiful deep reds that make us feel warmth and love, every time we look at them.
If Garnet is not your birthstone, gifting it to someone who does have it is said to bring warmth, trust, and devotion.
