THEME

January’s birthstone is a fiery red colour that exudes warmth and energy, even on a cold winter day. Garnet is the gem of friendship, loyalty and trust. It is said to bring tranquility and health to those born in the first month of the year. Flanked by three smaller Swarovski® crystals and surrounded by a Celtic art-inspired design, the colourful Swarovski® crystal at the centre is a token of good fortune—not just in your birthday month, but for the whole year. And with the help of a bezel kit (not included), your coin will easily become a cherished piece of jewellery that expresses who you are.

DESIGN

The reverse design by artist Pandora Young is an intersection of art and mathematics, and features a stylized pattern arranged according to the base-six system. Inspired by the Celtic triskele, the engraved art incorporates three clear Swarovski® crystals into our birthstone celebration of those born in January (garnet), as represented by the gem-like Swarovski® crystal at the centre of the coin. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Make it a personal celebration. We’re making birthdays extra special with our 12-part birthstone celebration! At the heart of every coin is a large gem-toned Swarovski® crystal that represents a birth month.
  • Four Swarovski® crystals are embedded on this coin: three small clear ones within the engraved pattern, and a larger one that adds more colourful sparkle than the actual birthstone
  •  A piece to treasure—and wear: With the help of a bezel kit (not included), each 27 mm coin can be turned into a necklace or pendant. It’s part collectible, part jewellery—a great statement piece that expresses who you are.
