the january birthstone edit: garnet

Happy New Year! January is the best time to make changes, and adding some garnets into your jewellery wardrobe is a great way to spice up your style this year.

Garnets are said to have been used for years by travellers as a protection from accidents, and is a symbol of peace and good health (something we all need after the amount we ate at Christmas…).  It is the stone that celebrates the 2nd anniversary of marriage, so they make a great 2nd anniversary gift as well as January birthday presents!
