Garnet is a beautiful. The color can range from deep maroon to a bright green. I drool every time I see this stone in that iconic deep maroon color. My most favorite accessory is a sterling silver ring with a rectangular cut garnet. I love it! And January isn’t even my birth month. Garnet feels regal. Perhaps it has something to do with the gem’s historical association with royalty. This garnet ring from Amazon has a cushion cut stone set in brushed sterling silver.

5 Bold Nails
I rarely paint my nails anything other than clear. But when I do paint them, I use bold colors like Retro Diva from China Glaze. It is a gorgeous shade of garnet. If you like bold colors then give it a try. Remember to use a base coat before applying any dark colored polish. Applying a base coat as a first layer can keep the dark polish from staining your nails.
