Amanda’s Style File: New Year, New Jewels

Kick off 2022 with these 15 garnet jewels for January birthdays.

Celebrate January with garnet jewels, like these garnet, diamond, and 18-karat gold earrings from Ara Vartanian.
January begins with optimism. It is a time to set goals, make resolutions, and start with a fresh slate.

Those celebrating birthdays in January have two opportunities to shine—not only is it a new calendar year, but their next trip around the sun is also starting—and two reasons to celebrate with jewelry. 

Garnet, the official birthstone of January, has a rich history fitting of promise. For thousands of years, red garnet has been believed to have healing powers and provide protection, something everyone could use right about now.

With garnets available in nearly every color, finding gorgeous garnet jewelry isn’t the challenge. Narrowing it down to one, however, might be a different story.

Here are 15 pieces of gorgeous garnet jewelry with which you can start your new year.
