Birthstone jewellery is a beautiful keepsake to honour the ones we love, and the ones we've lost. A precious gemstone to represent each month of the year
January's Birthstones are beautiful Garnet and Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is the stone of love and peace and is the heart chakra stone. It's also well known for skin rejuvination, and removing fine lines and wrinkles - this is usually done using a Rose Quartz Roller.
The Garnet gemstone gets its name from the latin word 'granatus' (which means grain or seed), because of its resemblance to a pomegranate seed. It's also the gemstone of the 2nd wedding anniversary.
This bracelet is crafted with genuine, natural 8mm Rose Quartz beads, 6x8mm Garnet ovals and 8mm lava beads. Each bracelet also includes sterling silver faceted spacer beads and tibetan silver spacers.
The origin of birthstones are as old as they are mysterious. Whilst the first official Birthstone list was created in 1912, it's thought that its origins go back much further! About 3,000 back. In the book of Exodus a breastplate is described to be adorned with 12 precious stones. It was then theorised that these 12 stones represented the 12months of the year. The history is quite interesting and you can read more about Birthstones over on the BLOG.
January Birthstone Bracelet - Rose Quartz and Garnet
Your aromatherapy bracelet is made for use with theraputic grade essential oils (we recommend and love doTERRA). Simply place one or two drops onto your fingers and massage into the Lava Beads. Allow the oil to be absorbed by the Lava before inhaling the beautiful aroma.
The scent will remain on your stone for up to 3 days depending on the oil. Simply layer additional oils to change or add to the scent.
Please be careful to avoid oils coming into contact with other elements of the lava jewellery as they may tarnish over time.
Semi-precious and precious gemstones require a little more TLC than stainless steel or metallic jewellery - please avoid wearing your gemstones whilst cleaning as the chemicals may damage the stones.
