A Van Scoy Diamonds Gemstone Spotlight
Totally Tubular Tuesday of Garnet Jewelry
Adored by royalty and commoners alike, The historic garnet gemstone, with a ranged translucent to transparent display, seen in rich red hues of rasberry, paler shades of pink, red, purple, orange, yellow and violet, is more than worthy of a Van Scoy Diamonds Gemstone Spotlight!
The celebrated birthstone of January is the richly hued red, violet or rasberry garnet gemstone. The richly colored stone is symbolic of love, and more precisely, a colorful gemstone often referenced in Greek Mythology to represent love, protection and good health for a loved one embarking on a journey. This is why the richly ranged in deep colors and hues of the Garnet january birthstone is coined the ‘Gem of Journeymen’.
Not only is the garnet a symbol of love, it is also one which, given as a gift, provides your loved one, friend or family member preparing for a journey both protection and hope for a speedy homecoming. The deep red garnet has also become symbolic of the reunion of estranged lovers.
This meaning belongs to the story of Hermes, Hades, the Greek Gods who brought this meaning to fruition in the giving of a pomegranate, symbolic of the garnet, to Persephone when she was taken by Hades to The Underworld. The gift of a pomegranate to Persephone, the rich red fruit often recognized as the symbol of the garnet, helped to save Persephone from Hades.
