Bold Amethyst Jewelry for the February Birthstone

The amethyst is the February birthstone and a variation of quartz that has a stunning purple color. Its hue can range from a deep violet to a light lilac. Although amethyst is found nearly all over the world, some of the largest deposits are in Brazil, Uruguay, South Korea, Zambia, the United States, and Canada. When you're searching for a beautiful gift for someone else or yourself, consider amethyst jewelry.

History of Amethyst

Amusingly, amethyst's name comes from the Greek word ametusthos, which means "not intoxicated," because they believed wearing the gemstone protected them from drunkenness. Others believe an amethyst is a calming stone, and wearing it can eliminate impatience and help the wearer keep a balanced mind. Some cultures wore amethysts to promote healing, peace, and happiness. Leonardo da Vinci once said an amethyst gets rid of evil thoughts and increases intelligence, and kings and queens used amethysts during the Middle Ages to signify their royalty.

Glamorous Amethyst Jewelry

If you're searching for amethyst jewelry today, you can find it in necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets. This gemstone is a popular choice for a gift because it complements both warm and cool colors. It's common to find amethysts paired with silver since the shiny metal perfectly highlights every shade the gemstone comes in. However, if you're searching for something different, you can also find amethyst jewelry in yellow gold. To add even more warmth and softness to the gemstone, consider getting a piece of jewelry in rose gold.

Not Just for February Babies

Even though the amethyst birthstone for February babies is a popular choice, you don't have to limit yourself to buying it just for people born in that month. In fact, the gemstone makes an excellent gift for people born any time of year. Since amethyst is the birthstone for the month we celebrate Valentine's Day, finding a heart-shaped piece of amethyst jewelry is a special gift. Additionally, amethyst is the alternate jewelry option for the sixth wedding anniversary.

Whether you're looking for a thoughtful gift for someone born in February or you'd love to own a piece of this stunning purple gemstone yourself, you'll find an unbeatable selection of amethyst jewelry when you shop at JCPenney.
