Garnet is the birthstone for January. It's my birthstone and that of my late grandmother, the Lily Mitchell behind our name. It's also one of my favourite stones.
Garnet is the stone of love and compassion, and of purity and truth. It's also said to promote success in business, self-esteem and to help spiritual awareness.
It takes it's name from the Latin word Garnatus, meaning seedlike..because of the likeness in colour to pomegranate seeds!
We've hand-picked some of our favourite garnet pieces here....perfect for a January birthday or just because you love them :)
