amethyst pendant set in sterling silver, February birthstone

For anyone who has someone in their life celebrating their birthday in February, this article is for you! Amethyst is the February birthstone, so in this article, we will be providing you with inspiration surrounding this iconic gemstone and what you can do to treat your Aquarius friend this February. 

Amethyst Birthstone Meaning & Symbolism 

With its deep shades of purple, amethyst has what some describe as a wine-like colour associated with Bacchus, the god of wine in Greek mythology. Amethyst is also thought to have the capacity to keep its wearer clear-headed – many warriors would wear amethyst to ensure speed and level headedness on the battlefield, while Renaissance writers believed it calmed lovers who had been overrun by passion.

Symbolising deep love, happiness, humility, sincerity and wealth, any piece of jewellery adorned with an amethyst will be sure to make a thoughtful birthday gift.  

In addition, amethyst has relaxing qualities and helps calm the mind, thus relieving stress. Amethyst can help boost creativity. Here at Hepburn & Hughes, we specialise in making jewellery pieces which not only make for the perfect present for a loved one, but are also unique and considerate gifts.

The rich purple colour of amethyst can brighten up the dreary winter days and add a pop of colour.

Our Amethyst earrings are set in a band of sterling silver with an ear wire fitting. These lightweight pieces are comfortable to wear and make for the perfect birthstone gift.
