January's birthstone is the Garnet. Associated with this gem are the qualities of consistancy and loyalty. This coin is made of 1/4 oz .9999 fine silver and features a large and handsomely cut sparkling Swarovski crystal element, deep Garnet in color, surrounded by decorative vines and wildflowers. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The coin is encapsulated inside a burgundy presentation case with an outer sleeve and includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. This would make a great gift for anyone born in January, or a treasure to cherish for yourself!
Centuries ago, astrologers began relating gemstones to specific zodiacs citing that a stone’s powers were heightened during that time. The daily practice of wearing the gemstone associated with one’s birth month emerged in 18th-century Poland; a concept that remains a source of great fascination to this day!
