These earrings have been handmade by me using Sterling Silver and two 10mm Amethyst semi-precious gemstone.
💎 AMETHYST 💎
Amethyst is the birthstone of February. The colour of Amethyst ranges from a lavender pink to a deep purple. Its name has been derived from the Greek word ‘Amethustos’, ‘A’ meaning ‘not’ and ‘methustos’ meaning ‘to intoxicate’. In Greek mythology, amethyst was rock crystal dyed purple by the tears of Dionysus, the god of intoxication. The Greeks believed that if they drank from a goblet made of Amethyst it would not make them drunk at all. The Romans believed that Amethyst prevented them from being drunk so drank from Amethyst goblets.
In Christianity, Bishops wore rings made of Amethyst as the royal purple colour symbolised Christ. Amethyst is mentioned in the Old Testament as one of the 12 stones representing the 12 tribes of Israel.
Historically, rich and powerful monarchs used Amethyst as a sign of their royalty and there are pieces of the gemstones in the British Crown Jewels. It was also a personal favourite of Queen Catherine the Great of Russia.
Amethyst is a powerful healing gemstone. It has strong cleansing powers and is said to spiritually awaken and stimulate intuition. It is good for overall protection as well as physical, emotional and mental balance. It calms and stimulates the mind, helps you become more focused, enhances memory and improving motivation.

Caring for your jewellery:
💎 Avoid perfumes, lotions, sunscreens and other chemicals (deodorant, hairspray etc.) getting on your jewellery.
💎 Do not wear your jewellery whilst swimming or leave it in the bathroom whilst showering or bathing. Humidity and moisture can speed up the tarnishing process.
💎 Your jewellery has sterling silver elements which will tarnish naturally over time. I have included a silver polishing / cleaning cloth which will help to bring back the shine to your jewellery.
💎 When you are not wearing your jewellery, wipe clean and place in a zip lock bag and store in a dry and dark place.
All items will arrive beautifully wrapped.
