13 Gorgeous Garnets To Celebrate January Birthdays

Reenergize, just in time for the New Year

January—and the New Year—are finally here, which means we can leave turquoise behind with 2016 (at least for another 11 months) to make room for a new birthstone to reign.

January’s birthstone, the garnet, is commonly a gorgeous, deep red, though it actually exists in a number of colors. It’s a stone of regeneration and vitality, known to have an energy boosting effect on its wearer. It has positive properties, considered a stone of commitment, hope, and faith, and is thought to help turn around negative thoughts and the feeling of helplessness. As an added bonus, it's also thought to aid in manifestation, so you can make those dreams a reality. 

In honor of the upcoming January birthdays, we rounded up the most badass pieces of garnet jewelry we could find—from crystal-eyed snakes to geometric baubles. However, even if you’re not a Capricorn or Aquarius cusp, the garnet makes for the perfect stone of the new year. After a rough 2016, we all could use a little revitalization, am I right?
