The brilliant gemstone in this necklace shows a colour of deep, ruby-like red, which is called Pyrope Garnet. Neutral colours work best with this stone. As for its attributes, it is said to bestow vitality and stability.
People often mistake Pyrope Garnet for a ruby, and while it would be cheeky not to let on that your gem is really a garnet, the choice is up to you!
As the birthstone for January, it is the right gem for the person who wants to start the New Year with goodwill, happiness, and purpose. Garnet is also great as a gift to someone whose friendship you deeply value as it symbolises lasting friendship.
