What better gift than a silver Claddagh ring set with the recipient’s own birthstone? January’s birthstone, garnet, is said to promote feelings of calmness and emotional healing. According to Irish folklore, it is a protective stone. The Claddagh is also meaningful with its symbols representing love (heart), friendship (hands) and loyalty (crown). It is made from sterling silver with cubic zirconia. This garnet ring has been Irish hallmarked in Dublin Castle.
