January Birthstone - Garnet

January's birthstone, Garnet, comes in many colors ranging from the traditional deep red to even green! Read below to learn more about this beautiful gem as well as some Valerie Madison Garnet Rings.

Originally named after "granatum" (the latin word for pomegranate), garnets are most commonly red. The Greeks associated the gifting of pomegranates with love & eternity, the perfect symbol to give a loved one. A Garnet Diamond Kiss Ring (pictured above) is dainty, stackable, and made to last.
