In bygone centuries, twelve stones were associated with the Twelve Apostles and so it became traditional to keep twelve stones and wear one a month. Wearing a single birthstone is only a few centuries old, and more recently a birthstone has become regarded as a gemstone that represents a person's month of birth. Birthstones are now often worn as jewellery and as pendants.
We at Disco Beads have created our own Birthstone collection!
January is represented by a Red Disco Bead with a Garnet Swarovski crystal element, all presented in a gift box on a 22" Sterling Silver lobster clasp snake chain.
Garnet is the birthstone for January and is used to signify eternal friendship and trust, making it the perfect gift for a friend!
This necklace comes with a sterling silver snake chain to sit comfortably in your neck line.
January spans Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th) and Aquarius (January 21st - February 19th).
