GARNET
Zuzu offers a wide range of jewellery featuring a variety of beautiful semi-precious gemstones. From threader earrings and bracelets to stacking rings and necklaces, our products not only look exquisite but they also have a story to tell. 

Garnet is the birthstone of January and the Aquarius starsign (Jan 20th - Feb 18th). If you're ever short on gift ideas, Garnet is the gemstone that celebrates the second anniversary of marriage.

Garnet can come in a variety of colours such as green, yellow, orange and purple but it is most commonly associated with a deep/dark red colour.

Garnet derives from the Latin word 'Garnanatus' which means 'seed-like' and refers to the pomegranate. This is because small pieces of Garnet resemble pomegranate seeds.
