K Middleton ringDid you know garnet is the birthstone for January? Named after the Latin “Granate” meaning seed as it was said to resemble the seeds of a pomegranate. It is supposed to have regenerative and energizing properties as well as bringing order to your life – Perfect for keeping you on track! Most commonly it comes in a deep rich red colour but can also come in shades of pink, purple, orange, yellow, brown, black and rarest of all blue.
Famous celebrities whose birthdays are in January include The Duchess of Cambridge, who owns a pearl and garnet ring believed to have been bought for her by Prince William as it combines both their birthstones (Pearl is the birthstone for June).
