The January Birthstone Pendant
January’s birthstone is the juicy garnet. Full of character and rich colour, its name is derived from the Latin word ‘granatus’, meaning seed or grain, because of the stone’s resemblance in hue to the seeds of the pomegranate fruit in its most recognised, blood-red form. Legends and folklore place garnets among the most ancient of talismans, not only prized as an ornamental jewel but also as one that had strong curative powers and protective energies. For many, garnet gemstones are believed to inspire creative energy and purify the body to a re-energized state. It is also thought by crystal enthusiasts to promote self-empowerment and harness inner strength.
Our Birthstone Pendants are particularly popular as christening presents as they perfectly marry bespoke customisation with timeless elegance. For those who wish to personalise their pendant beyond the central birthstone, we offer custom engraving as well as the application of additional gemstones if required. Examples of fully personalised Birthstone Pendants can be found on our Bespoke Page.
