Amethyst is one of the most popular and most recognizable gemstones around. Abundant, relatively affordable, and, of course—purple! A symbol of royalty, nobility, and luxury, purple is on trend for both women and men (go ahead, count how many purple neckties you spot this week…) and, with its balanced blend of blue and red, purple is a welcome representation of unity. For those born in February, we hope the idiom ‘born in the purple’ will tickle you pink…
Here are our winning birthday gift suggestions from our most popular categories:
Beads: Start a bracelet or add to one—birthstone, flower-of-the-month, and zodiac beads are no-fail birthday gifts.
Big n’ Bold: Large, unusually cut amethysts make great center-stones for statement sized rings, or, go for a striking combo with black and white diamonds.
Purple and Gold: Amethyst looks swell in any metal, but there is something decidedly royal when paired with yellow gold—whether in traditional or contemporary designs.
Stack n’ Slide: Collectible rings and pendants in sterling silver in plenty of designs. Personalize a stack with a name or zodiac band.
Mix n’ Match: Along with sister citrine and other bright gemstones, amethyst is almost always included in confetti or rainbow designs. Make a splash!
