Garnets: January's birthstone is easily the most variable and versatile of all birthstones. While most think of garnets as a red stone, there are varieties of garnet in virtually every hue, including blue thanks to a relatively recent discovery of color-changing blue garnets in Madagascar. Garnets have been used in ornamentation since at least the time of the Egyptians.

Storing garnet jewelry

In your jewelry box, store garnet jewelry in its own compartment or in a cloth bag to prevent damage either to or from other pieces of jewelry. Garnet is not susceptible to color change from light or heat exposure, but care should be taken to avoid exposing it to other chemicals.

Cleaning your garnet

Clean occasionally with a soft, dry cloth. With the exception of the more expensive forms, garnet can be cleaned in an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. Avoid exposing garnets to harsh chemicals and extreme temperatures, both of which can damage the gem.
