Discover Amethyst - The February Birthstone

Boasting fabulous purple hues, amethyst is best known as the February birthstone. A variety of quartz that can be found in many locations around the world, this beautiful gem can be traced back to as early as the 1600’s. 

Also known throughout the ages for its healing properties, amethyst is said to help soothe the mind and emotions. Ancient Egyptians wore amethyst filled amulets as a form of protection against harm, whilst the greeks wore it with the belief that it would prevent intoxication.  

A precious stone once worth as much as a diamond, it is now commonly used in a range of jewellery settings and is widely recognised as the birthstone of February. 

How to Style Amethyst

Amethysts mid-tone makes it an incredibly versatile gemstone. It can be worn with both cold and warm tones and works equally well in a range of metals. 

Bold and distinctive in colour, amethyst can make for the perfect statement piece. Choose an oval cut for a larger stone that’s sure to get people’s undivided attention or opt for something with added sparkle. 

For a more subtle addition to your attire choose a simple design like these amethyst stud earrings or this elegant pendant necklace.
