February's Birthstone | Amethyst
A beautiful gemstone coming in purple shades ranging from pale lilac to deep violet, amethyst is February’s birthstone.
Perfect for February birthdays, amethyst jewellery also makes a meaningful Valentine’s Day present - legends say that amethyst is the favourite gemstone of Saint Valentine, who had an image of Cupid carved out of an amethyst ring. A Valentine's Day gift imbued with mythology? Yes please!
Did you know? Leonardo Da Vinci once said that amethyst helps to quicken intelligence and get rid of evil thoughts. Head over to our Guide To Birthstone Jewellery for more fun facts about amethyst.
Today, amethyst is a symbol of peace, protection and tranquillity and it’s said to bring you calm and serenity.
Pantone Colour of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet
This year is also the perfect time to wear these stunning purple tones, as the Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 is Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple reminiscent of the midnight sky.
Pantone says the shade suggests the mystery of the cosmos and galaxies, with its colour evoking the magical night sky as well as being associated with spirituality and mindfulness.
Purple is definitely the colour to be seen in 2018, and amethyst jewellery is the perfect way to tap into this colour trend. Coordinate your look and make a not-so-shrinking-violet statement by matching your purple jewellery with other accessories, make-up or your outfit.
