Garnet January Birthstones: ‘The Gem of Faith’

This month, URBANfusion is proud to unveil an array of jewelry centered around January birthstones. We are currently offering a number of PANDORA birthstone charms, necklaces, and pendants that incorporate January birthstone gems in a way that could only be achieved by a renowned jewelry maker like PANDORA.


Often regarded as one of the most captivating and unique gems in the world, January birthstones are made from beautiful garnet. These stones can be found in a wide range of colors spanning from bright orange to deep green, but are most commonly known to have a deep red hue. This beautiful dark red color can be found in most of our garnet products, such as the PANDORA Droplet Garnet Pendant available at URBANfusion.

History & Folklore

Like any storied gem or piece of jewelry, January birthstones have quite the history, making items such as the January Medium Petit Necklace from PANDORA that much more meaningful.

The name ‘garnet’ is originally derived from a Latin word that translates to ‘seed’ as a result of the stone’s resemblance to a pomegranate seed. URBANfusion carries a number of breathtaking products containing garnet-colored stones, including the PANDORA January Birthstone Droplet Gift Set. Due to the array of colors and compelling beauty of these garnet stones, they have remained one of the most sought-after birthstones in the world.

As is the case with any birthstone, there is folklore surrounding the use or possession of the stone itself. It has been said that garnet keeps its wearer safe while traveling, making it a perfect symbolic gift for loved ones with a strong sense of wanderlust.

Additionally, garnet has been referred to for years as the “Gem of Faith,” stemming from the belief that if someone does good deeds while wearing the stone, even greater things await them in the future. While there are many unproven stories about garnet itself, one thing we can be certain of is the immense beauty possessed by the January birthstone.

URBANfusion is the best place to find gorgeous, yet affordable garnet jewelry online. With an ever-expanding range of products spanning from PANDORA promise rings to Valentine’s Day Gift Sets and beautiful red garnet birthstones, you can find the perfect gifts for that special someone in your life with a January birthday at URBANfusion.
