birthstonesHappy birthday, fellow January babes.  Let’s celebrate our births by donning our birthstone, the garnet.  Sure, we didn’t luck out like the girls of April who were bestowed the diamond as their stone, but garnets don’t necessarily need to be associated with shopping mall jewelry stores or gifts from your highschool boyfriend.  In my potentially biased opinion, a garnet is like a way chicer ruby.  Fortunately for us, garnets are actually having a fashion moment.  They are the hue that has been awfully hot (and haute) on the red carpet as well as the runway.
