Product Description

Inspiration
Birthstone January Garnet Initial Necklace is hand engraved with a scrolled initial and each piece is embellished with a little ‘brilliant’ cut sparkly Garnet in a Victoriana star style setting.

The January Garnet is rumoured to be a protective stone, helping to protect the recipient from evil. The most widely-known colour of Garnet gemstones is dark red. Garnet is believed to get its name from Latin for ‘seed’ due to the red garnet’s similarity to a pomegranate seed. Garnets have long been used since the Bronze Age and red Garnets were the most commonly used gemstones in the Late Roman world.

Birthstone January Garnet Initial Necklace embellished with the stone of love and devotion, is said to be an ancient symbol of friendship, encompassing everlasting affection. Such symbolism of the Garnet gemstone makes this piece an even more meaningful gift for the one you love most.

Wear your close one’s initial around your neck and treasure forever.

Your precious items deserve to be looked after to ensure they stay looking their best.
Here are some simple tips to keep your jewellery in good condition.

Check that fastenings are secure on necklaces and bracelets and that butterflies are tight on earrings.
A little tip is squeeze the two scrolls of your butterfly backs together to ensure they grip the post of your earring securely.

Take jewellery off before undressing to avoid catching it on clothes and pulling on any links or catches.
And I know it’s tempting to wear your jewellery in bed, while swimming, showering or at the gym but it should be avoided.

Always put your jewellery on after applying make-up and lovely scent as these elements will tarnish your jewellery.
When not wearing your jewellery, always keep each piece separately in your soft pouch so that it won’t scratch or be scratched by other pieces.

Love and care for your precious jewellery.

 

18ct Yellow Gold : (750 parts of Gold per thousand)
9ct Yellow Gold : (375 parts of Gold per thousand)

Yellow Gold is alloyed with copper and silver to strengthen it and give it longevity.
The shade of the Gold depends on the Gold content, therefore 18ct Yellow colour is richer in colour than the paler Yellow Gold.

Sterling Silver : 925 hallmarked Sterling Silver
Gold Vermeil : layer of 18ct Gold Plate of at least 2.5 microns over the top of Sterling Silver.

Gold Vermeil is a layer of 18ct Gold Plate that will eventually wear away over time
The speed of this wear is affected by elements such as being exposed to water, heat, chlorine, natural body oils, products and perfumes.

I know it’s tempting to wear your jewellery while swimming, showering or at the gym but it should be avoided.
And it’s best to put your jewellery on after applying your make-up and lovely scent.
