Garnet, Jewelry Making Gemstone for JanuaryrThe birthstone for January is the garnet.  Garnet normally comes in the red color shown here.  Because garnet has a hardness that is less than the hardness of most dust, garnets are not suitable for everyday wear in rings and bracelets.  We recommend considering garnet colored cubic zirconia (CZ) as a replacement for garnet.  They look the same, but CZs have a hardness of 8.5 and are the fourth hardest naturally occurring material and for this reason are almost impervious to loss of polish due to abrasion.  Please select the picture above-right to view more information on the garnet. 

We have three jewelry making kits for January using our 8mm garnet cubic zirconia gemstones to simulate garnets.  They are a ring kit,  an earring kit and a necklace kit.  You can view the items in these kits and links to our instructions for assembling the kit in the table below.

We have many other quick and easy jewelry projects that you can consider.  Please select here to view nine 10 minute jewelry making projects that are suitable for beginners or advanced beginners. 

PLEASE NOTE:  We believe that these jewelry making kits are fantastic values.  Customers should not consider that because the prices are so reasonable for these kits that the products are cheap.  You would be wrong.  We purchase top quality gemstones, man-made gemstones, tools, wire and findings to include in these kits directly from the factory.  Our prices are low because we purchase directly from the source and there are no middlemen, no distributors, and no stores with high overhead that need to be paid.  We could easily charge three times as much for these kits and they would still be a great value.  We are going to sell these kits at a fair price and hope that word of mouth advertising will let people know about what a great value they are.  If that doesn't work, our next approach will be to increase the prices commensurate with the value.
