January Birthstone - Garnet

Silver Heart Pebble bracelet with Garnet £27

Silver and Rhodolite Garnet Rings £70
To dash those January blues why not personalise your jewellery with the
addition of a beautiful Birthstone.  For all those lucky people with presents to look forward to in January, the birthstone for this month is stunning Garnet.

There are several different types of Garnet including Pyrope, Rhodolite, Almandine, Spessartine, Hessonite, Grossular, Andradite, Demantoid and Uvarovite.  The most popular type that is used in jewellery today is Pyrope.  This is the only garnet to display the wonderful red shade.

The garnet family contain more than 10 different gem colours including red, purple, brown, orange, yellow, green, blue, colourless and even black.  The red garnets have long been associated with heroes or warriors. The crusaders used to decorated their armor with garnets as talismans to prevent harm.  They are also said to bring the wearer peace of mind, protection, enhance their cleverness, help to endure hardships and enhance a sense of justice, honesty and sympathy.

We have Garnet rings, necklaces and bracelets.  We can also add garnets to cuff-links, tie-pins or most types of jewellery.

You can even add a garnet charm to our popular Bow or Doric Collections to add a hint of colour or sparkle.  The garnet can be placed on a necklace next to a pendent or hang on the back of your catch so the necklace is stylish both front and back.  

If you have something special in mind for a loved one born in January and would like to incorporate a Garnet in the design, contact the shop and let us help you design something unique.
