Deepika Padukone to Katrina Kaif: Celeb approved ways to add Garnet, birthstone of January in your jewellery

A vibrant gemstone, the bright and sparkly Garnet gets its name from the fruit Pomegranate! The stone holds relevance in mythology and is often linked to concepts like rebirth and hence the gemstone for the month of January. The gemstone though can vary in colours and this is what makes it, unlike any other gem. While most believe that it is the pure red shade and resembles a ruby, it is also available in shades of green and grey, which are more expensive as they are rarer.

While Garnets and Rubies do look similar, they have minute yet noticeable differences to them. While a Garnet expels more light and is softer than Rubies, they tend to have a slightly brown tinge to them.

They also play a major significance in astrology and are correlating stones to the star signs Aquarius and Capricorn. These stones are also known for their purification qualities and help rid both the body and mind of negativity and toxicity while wearing them, making them perfect to sport at the start of a new year.
