February Blog - Amethyst
Amethyst is the birthstone this month, famed for its rich purple tones, this semi precious gemstone has a long history. It was named by the Greeks, from the word for ‘intoxication’, as they believed the colour to be like wine or grapes.
The Crown jewels are glittering with deep purple African amethysts, but thanks to various heat treatments, amethysts are also now available in a beautiful pale sage green and pink too, which opens up a wide colour range of natural gemstones at an affordable price.
Purple amethyst looks great worn with grey and pinks, whilst the paler pink and green stones are good for Spring and Summer colour palettes. Equally beautiful set in silver or gold, you bound to find an amethyst to suit you in our range.
