One of the oldest known gemstones, garnets have been revered for millennia by cultures worldwide for their vibrant hues and protective, healing qualities. Representing the heart, creativity, courage, and the feminine life force, the semi-precious stones have long been worn by royalty – such as Queen Victoria and the Russian Czarinas – to offer protection from harm, as well as to ward off melancholy and improve circulation.

Symbolising life, light and love, garnet jewellery is a perfect gift for January babies, and this versatile gemstone can be found at almost any price point. Whether you’re looking for some everyday sparkle or dazzling high jewellery, here’s our pick of the best garnet birthstone jewellery for January…
