Also referred to as the traveler's stone because of the thought that it protected wearers on their journey, garnet has held rich symbolism for thousands of years. Garnets are also associated with love, passion, prosperity, as well as pomegranates! The ancient Egyptians, Greeks & Romans held garnet in close relation to the pomegranate fruit which is hinted at the in the origin of the word garnet itself.

Garnets are the modern-day birthstone for January, becoming the official birthstone in 1912.

The Hercules knot is another symbolically rich symbol that has been in use for thousands of years. Though the origin is still unknown, the meaning has transcended across generations. Resilience, strength, fidelity, & perseverance are just a few of what this knot is known for! On top of having meaning meanings, this knot is also known by several names including the lovers knot, sailors knot and reef knot.

Used for marriage ceremonies, in wound healing and for marine purposes. The Hercules (alt. Herakles) name origin is also unclear however the knot became heavily associated with the Olympian throughout history. There are thoughts that it comes from his fight with the Nemean lion or perhaps a test from Hera who presented him with a complex knot. associated with love & marriage is likely due to Hercules himself. As the Roman god of strength & fertility, the knot's secure form beautifully symbolized the binding of two lives & the potential for a fruitful union. In many cultures, the knot became a cherished element in marriage ceremonies, representing the couple's everlasting bond
