January Garnet Necklaces

Red garnet necklaces are a popular gift for the birthstone of January and for Valentines Day due to the lovely deep red color. Garnet is one of the more affordable gemstones and is readily available, although this means there are thousands of jewelry pieces to choose from!

To narrow down the vast range of choices available to you, the first major step is to decide on the metal used in the jewelry: gold or silver or simply just beaded stones with no metal settings. Below are samples in each of these three categories in the price range $100 to $200. Tip: An economic alternative to solid gold is gold platedgold-filled or gold vermeil jewelry.

Tips when buying garnet jewelry

Garnet - various types and colours

You may sometimes see a piece labelled ‘garnet’ which does not appear to have any red stones in it, so what gemstone is it?

There are many varieties of garnet that come in different colors, the deep red Pyrope garnet is just the most well known.

For the less common varieties the jeweler should specify the type of garnet in the product specification, for example Spessartite is the orange form.

Product Specification Example
  • There is usually a choice of gold color – white, yellow or rose gold and the price may differ accordingly.
  • The online image of the item may make it look larger than it is in reality, so check the measurement guide and any photos of models wearing the item.
  • Consult the Product Specifications carefully (usually found at the bottom of the product page), for example to check if chains are included with pendants, and whether the gems are natural or manufactured.
  • Keep all the documentation and packaging for a few weeks after receiving your jewelry item, in case there is any need to return it. Most online jewelry stores offer a returns service and will gladly oblige.
