February birthstone is the amethyst, a stone that is part of the quartz family and carries stunning purple colours from a blend of deep violet and reds through to the lighter lilac hue.

The amethyst stone is a February birthstone.

The amethyst name comes from Koine Greek; the ancient Greeks thought the amethyst stone would protect the wearer from the intoxicating powers of Bacchus, enabling the wearer to keep a balanced mindset and keeping them calm, sharp and quick-witted.

The Amethyst gemstone has been associated with many myths, legends, and religions in numerous cultures for centuries.
Through the Middle Ages, the gemstone was believed to have symbolised royalty, and today, the amethyst is supposed to bestow upon the wearer peace, courage, stability, sincerity and strength.

It’s not only the beautiful hues of the amethyst stone that make it so desirable, but its availability in various shapes and sizes makes the gemstone very affordable.

Amethyst set bespoke jewellery.

The amethyst is such a versatile stone. It’s available in many cuts, sizes and violet colours. It’s an excellent stone for your next bespoke jewellery piece.

The amethyst looks excellent when set in 18ct yellow gold, 18ct white gold and platinum, allowing the stone and the precious metal to enhance any colour in your wardrobe.

It looks fantastic and is set into a bespoke ring, pendant, and earrings. It looks incredible on its own or set with diamonds or other complementary coloured gemstones such as golden beryl.

Pantone colour of the year 2018 – Ultra Violet

2018 is a great year to explore the wonders of the amethyst, whether it’s your birthstone or not, as Ultra Violet 18 – 3838 has been awarded the Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 by the Pantone Colour Institute.

The institute is famous for forecasting colour trends for each calendar year and advising significant companies on brand identity, product development and the emotion of colour in their design strategy. First-hand, the beauty of the amethyst.

I have been using the amethyst stone for many years in my design and manufacture, and one of my favourite pieces was this 26ct antique cushion cut amethyst that I set in this stunning 18ct white gold dress ring.
