January Birthstone

January Birthstone


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.

January Birthstone

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).
