Birthstones by Month & Colors
January birthstone: Garnet
Hardness: 6.5 to 7.5
Meaning: Garnets promote health, wealth, and happiness and inspire confidence and creativity. The fiery red garnet is associated most frequently with January, but garnets come in a wide array of types and colors, including red-orange, orange, yellow, green, and pink.
Meaning: Amethysts were historically believed to cure drunkenness with an extra dose of wit and mental stamina. Once reserved for royalty, amethysts are now available for the masses thanks to large amethyst deposits discovered in Brazil.
Meanings: Aquamarines symbolize tranquility, and bloodstones symbolize strength and protection. The blue aquamarine is transparent, while the bloodstone is opaque. The two stones are very different but both represent inner strength and stability.
Meaning: Diamonds symbolize longevity and eternality. They’re not only reserved for engagement rings, but also claimed by those born in April. White sapphires or silver spinels are a budget-friendly alternative to diamonds.
Meaning: Peridot is associated with strength and balance. It is believed to bring peace, health, and rest by harmonizing the mind and body. Black Spinel is a protective stone thought to help the wearer find calmness and release resentments.
