February Birthstone: Amethyst

Welcome to February! If you were born this month, your birthstone is amethyst. Historically, amethyst is associated with spirituality, wisdom, sobriety (they used to grind it into a powder and put it into wine to prevent drunkeness) and security. Some folks also believe it has natural soothing properties. I say it’s my birthstone and it’s purple and it’s cool! Today I will wear two of my favourite amethyst pieces, the ring above, which I made myself (well it’s a mashup of a broken ring and a broken bracelet) and the Tiffany & Co bracelet that I got when they launched their perfume Trueste back in the day.
