  • What is the symbolism of amethyst?

    Amethyst is believed to represent wisdom, stability, and strength. Amethyst is attached to Ancient Greek mythology, and in fact, its name comes from an Ancient Greek word for ‘intoxication’, because the gem was believed to protect people from intoxication. As such this gemstone has also been associated with protection for the wearer.

    Amethyst is the birthstone for February, so amethyst jewellery makes for a meaningful and personalised gift for your loved ones with February birthdays. Of course, if you love the look and symbolism of amethyst, it’s also perfect for treating yourself!


  • How do I wear amethyst jewellery?

    Amethyst is a beautifully coloured gemstone which can be worn alone as a statement piece, or layered with other jewellery.

    Start with one piece, such as an amethyst ring, amethyst necklace, or amethyst earrings. If you want to work more of the colour into your look, add a matching piece for simple and elegant styling. If you would prefer to keep one amethyst style as your statement piece, but you’d like a little more shine, simply layer with extra pieces in the same metal colour.

    Amethyst looks equally striking in a setting of yellow gold, white gold, or sterling silver. So to create a unique layered jewellery look, pair your amethyst jewellery with pieces in plain yellow gold, white gold, or sterling silver to match.

    If you have your eye on a sparkling amethyst ring, find your perfect ring size and make it yours.
