Once adorned by Egyptian pharaohs and used to seal important documents, garnet is the gemstone associated with January birthdays. While most people will instantly think of red garnets, the most abundant shade, garnets come in a rich colour palette from greens and oranges to reds and browns.

From a classic pendant necklace to a contemporary ear cuff, these are our top 10 garnet birthstone gifts.
