Is your birthday in the month of February? Then you must probably know that your birthstone is amethyst. This purple gemstone displays the elegance of royalty in every way.

Throughout the ages, many kings and queens have had this gem among their personal items. Purple is commonly associated with royalty and is the choice for any king or queen as they use it often on a crown or scepter. One such notable personality is Catherine the Great of Russia who had a special liking for this stone. All her jewelries and ornaments had a touch of this stone to it.

Amethyst is one of the more affordable gemstones and ranks as a beautiful staple for the royal necklace or a great accent to a diamond engagement ring. However you use the birthstone in jewelry, it is a beautiful addition to your wardrobe.

Get to Know the Amethyst Birthstone Better

Amethyst is the purple variety of the quartz material. Its color spectrum ranges from dark plum color to a hint of lavender which is a lavish color from the iron remnants in the crystalline structure during the process of formation.

The dark purple natural stones are the most sought after stones and many of the natural stones contain “color zoning”- the attribute of having shades of color within a gem. Heat treatment of the stone can produce a lighter hue of dark colored amethyst which gives a more enticing appearance.

Amethyst is found in many regions around the world which include Brazil, Zambia and the United States, precisely in Arizona. Geographically speaking, the stone is very prevalent. It can form in most places typically area with mountains or craters

Why is Amethyst the February birthstone?

There is actually no evidence that points to when a certain stone is a birthstone for a certain month. What is known is that in 1912, the Jewelers Association of America adopted an official list which has been in use till this day. Different theories abound that this association must have been derived from the Bible or even from the zodiac. However, certain aspects of amethyst’s history may tell why it is the birthstone for February.

The name “Amethyst” is Greek and means “not drunken” and is believed to stem from ancient Greek beliefs that it wards off alcoholic effects. Furthermore, Bacchus, the ancient Roman god of wine was very much associated with this birthstone. Even regarded as his living symbolism on Earth.

The month of February is usually when wine is bottled and ready for consumption so it is possible the deep purple color of wine may be the reason why the stone was picked.

There is no proof to back this up however, but one thing you can be sure of is true is that amethyst makes a great addition to a bracelet, necklace or ring. The stone is one of the most beautiful and unique stone there is. It is just as beautiful and unique as those who celebrate their birthdays in February.

Here, check out our favorites in a range of cut and settings. At the very least, we recommend treating yourself to one for the good vibes.

                                      Solitaire Amethyst Rings

A solitaire amethyst ring has already been elegant and bold. Large amethyst gemstones are relatively affordable. Buyers can pick massive gemstones for stately solitaires without big budget. We like massive amethyst center gemstones for engagement rings. If you want to forego any side diamonds or gem details, set a sizable amethyst center stone inside a vintage-inspired etched band. Or go for sleek and trendy having a simple polished setting to permit the magnificence from the stone to shine.

                               Amethyst Double Halo Engagement Ring

Halo designs for engagement rings are more popular to highlight a center gemstone. However, not every halos are built the same. For an amethyst ring with an angular cut (Such as Emerald or Asscher), a square diamond halo can make those diamonds pop! If you need a softer round or oval cut center amethyst,Adding bigger accent diamonds within the halo can bring any bold look, or go subtle having a delicate drop halo (as featured within this hidden halo diamond engagement ring) below your amethyst jewel. For any more classic look, make it simple having a halo of petite round diamonds. This style emits a vintage, even cameo-like design.
