Happy Birthday Savvy Sistahs, if your birthday is in January your birthstone is a “Garnet”.This gemstone is found in many different shades although it is commonly known as a red gemstone. It was first mined in Sri Lanka over 2500 years ago and comes from the Latin word granatus, meaning “grain or seed”. The name garnet comes from the close resemblence to the pomegranate fruit seeds. So even if your birthday isn’t in January you can still carry a hip handbag, wear a sassy cocktail dress or step out in trendy shoes that compliment the exquisite sparkle of the garnet. Check out how stunning this shade looks on Savvy Sistah Vivica A. Fox and it’ll look the same on you!
