January Alternate Birthstones

Handmade, because you deserve it!
I hope everyone had an absolutely fabulous New Year celebration and wish you all a very prosperous 2009.

We are all familiar with the gorgeous reds of Mozambique garnets and the purplish red of Rhodolite, but did you know that garnets come in all colors? Blue is the most rare and also the most valuable. The reds, purples, oranges (spessartite, hessonite) and greens (tsavorite, grossular) are more frequently seen on the market today.

Sparkly New Year!
