DC jewelers guide to the February birthstone
The February birthstone is Amethyst. Amethyst is a beautiful purple stone that has been worn for centuries.
“Amethyst is purple quartz and is a beautiful blend of violet and red that can be found in every corner of the world. The name comes from Ancient Greek, derived from the word methustos, which means “intoxicated.” Ancient wearers believed the gemstone could protect them from drunkenness.”
The Ancient Greeks and Romans also believed that this gem kept the person wearing it clear-headed and quick-witted. The gem has also been used to show royalty, upper status, and wealth, among other things.
However, in the 21st century, the stone symbolizes beauty in its truest form.
What should you wear with Amethyst jewelry?
This bright purple gem should be the center of every ensemble.
The purple works with both warm and cool colors but looks best with the basics.
The perfect outfit would be all black with Amethyst as the centerpiece.
