Friday Finds, January Birthstone Style: Garnet Earrings

Valentine's Day is just a month away! Even if you weren't born in January, you may want to add garnet jewelry to your wishlist. The deep red January birthstone is a symbol of loyalty and affection when given as a gift. The gem can even evoke passion and sensual magic between lovers. However, if you're single and moping around about it - wearing garnet is also known to help overcome depression and protect against negative energy.

Garnet has been one of my favorite gemstones since I bought a unique poison ring as a teenager - the tiny red jewel hid a container that I filled with a pinch of glitter. I couldn't find any rings like it on Etsy, but my eyes fell for these gorgeous garnet earrings instead. Each pair of gems is coupled with hammered sterling silver.
