January...oh January Birthdays

By Nancy DeRoo on 1/8/2018

January… oh January birthdays!!     

Looking for a gift that builds memories and covers that birthstone for the month of January?  We have Chamilia charms that fit that bill.  Jewelry is an emotional thing.  Giving a gift for a significant occasion, such as a birthday, creates that memory.  Every time they wear that item, they know when and why they received it.  Ask anybody who owns a Chamilia bracelet, they can tell you a story for each charm.  Create her story with a charm!  Tell the tale of Garnet in a note with the charm.

If your birthday is in the month of January, you have the Garnet group as your birthstone.  That’s right I said group!  YOU have the choice of almost every color!  Even, a color-change blue!

The traditional color for January is beautiful, stunning, true red.  Red, the color of love! 

According to the Bible, in the book of Exodus, the breastplate of Aaron has a setting of stones, even four rows: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle. A carbuncle is an ancient term for what was probably a ruby or a garnet.
