Wonderful champagne garnets are actually a combination of pyrope, spessartine, and almandine all in one. At first, the miners who found them cast them aside because they didn’t think they were worth anything; how times have changed! Now, these are some of our favorite gems with their delicate blush-toned shades that pair well with anything.
Garnet is the birthstone for the month of January.
Gems from the heart
Moyo means 'heart' in Kiswahili. When you purchase a Moyo gem, you’re helping women artisanal gem miners (and their male allies!) in Tanzania and Kenya. We work to empower miners to work safely, improve financial security, and create stable, equitable markets for fair trade. A Moyo gem gives back a higher percentage of the sale than an ANZA gem, and this amount is re-invested into the Moyo Gems program to help run market days and support local community needs.
