The birthstone for January is the gorgeous Garnet. Sometimes mistaken for the Ruby, this striking red gemstone is said to bring the wearer luck, health and abundance, and is associated with the heart.

The Ancient Egyptians used garnet in their art and as beads for necklaces. It is mined in India, China, South Africa and Australia and comes in blue, green and peach in addition to the more familiar red.

Take a look at our fabulous selection of pendants, bracelets, earrings and rings featuring the impressive garnet, either on its own or set beautifully with other multicoloured stones. And we have more in store in Broadstone, Poole!
