SAVE 20% on February's Birthstone: Amethyst!

The gift of Amethyst -- February's birthstone -- is symbolic of protection and the power to overcome difficulty. It is said to strengthen the bond in a love relationship. Whether or not Amethyst holds such power, it's stunning beauty will certainly make anyone who wears it feel like royalty!

February's purple birthstone has been found among the possessions of royalty throughout the ages. The intense violet hue of Amethyst appealed to early monarchs, perhaps because purple dye was scarce and expensive at one time, and so the color was reserved for the garments of kings and queens.

The ancient Greeks believed that Amethyst held many powers, among them protection against intoxication. In fact, the word Amethyst comes from the Greek word "amethystos," meaning sober. Even today, Amethyst is considered a stabilizing force for those struggling to overcome addictive behaviors.
