The month of January is a special month, it’s the beginning of a whole new year. A fresh start. And for January we have a special red gemstone called the Garnet that is considered our January babies birthstone. Some famous people that our January babies share a birthday with are Kay Middleton, Oprah Winfrey, and Ellen DeGeneres. And guess what? They all rock the beautiful garnet gemstone as well. Legends have said that garnets bring peace and prosperity to the person wearing it and symbolize friendship and safe travels.
