“You don’t have to be a January baby to enjoy a fine Garnet” – C.B
Star Signs are one thing and Birthstones are another. Crafty Victorian Jewellers were intrigued by astrology, saw a market for it and invented the birthstones we know today. This means of course that you don’t have to be a January baby to enjoy a fine Garnet!
18ct White Gold compliments this superb stone (and its brothers and sisters) and only our Exclusive Noble White Gold will do! (See the Noble Alloys Page to learn more)
Since time immemorial, Garnets have held a special place in the hearts of people the world over. Even in Anglo Saxon times there was a well-trodden trade route with Southern India and Tamraparni (ancient Sri Lanka), known from antiquity for its production of gemstones.
Garnets were found in famous excavations such as The Staffordshire Hoard and some fine examples discovered in the pendant of the Winfarthing Woman.
