Gifting Amethyst

Amethyst is the birthstone of February and makes a lovely birthday present.

It is also the zodiac stone for Pisces, and associated with Virgo, Aquarius, and Capricorn.

Gifts for the 4th, 6th, and 17th wedding anniversaries typically feature Amethysts.

Amethyst used to be considered a protective amulet given to travellers before long journeys…what a lovely custom to continue today, perhaps for a student going to university or on a gap year. It would make a lovely sentiment for a new bride on her honeymoon.  Click here to order a wanderlust compass keychain.

Jewellery is a common way to gift Amethyst as it is believed it should be kept close to the body in order for the wearer to benefit from the healing powers of the crystal. For example, wearing Amethyst earrings may ease headaches and clear the mind, while a bracelet could lessen the pain of arthritis, and a necklace simply promote an overall calming feeling.

Aromatherapy jewellery that combines the healing benefits of crystals and essential oils is becoming more and more popular, with Amethyst recommended for those dealing with stressful lives in need of some relaxation and calm. Click here to view the range of aromatherapy jewellery available to purchase online.
