January Birthstone

Posted by Amanda on 25th Jan 2018

Even though the month is almost over (crazy, right?!) I wanted to share a little about the January birthstone. I love making an otherwise generic pair of earrings super personal by customizing them to my friends and families birthstones.

January is represented by the deep red color Garnet. I love using siam crystals for garnet because it has the rich red color with just enough sparkle and brightness to not look black.

Garnets symbolize friendship, truth and faith. They are used to ward off nightmares and are said to keep the wearer safe during travel.

I used photoshop to make some quick earring cards to package the earrings I wanted to gift. I’ll share the PDF so you can do the same. I just printed the template on cardstock and pushed the studs through the center. I love how they came out.

The complete birthstone chart is here as well as my favorite Swarovski crystal colors to use for each of them.
