The color purple is considered a sign of royalty. Being purple in color, the amethyst is also linked with connotations of royalty. The attributes given to amethyst include power, protection and health. For these reasons alone, simply wearing a piece of amethyst jewelry could generate positive thoughts and feelings.
Amethyst is the birthstone for February. While it makes a fantastic birthday gift for anyone born during that month, it can be given as a gift on numerous other occasions. An amethyst bracelet, necklace, ring or a pair of earrings would be an excellent holiday gift for someone special. An eternity ring with a stunning amethyst and diamond design would bring a wonderful anniversary gift. Actually, amethyst is the appropriate stone to be given on a 6th anniversary. Because of its beauty and popularity, opening an anniversary gift and finding an amethyst necklace, bracelet, ring or other piece of jewelry that included amethyst in its design would make any anniversary considerably more special.
Amethyst is so exquisite that it can stand alone and be absolutely magnificent. However, jewelry that includes a mix of amethyst and diamonds may be an example of elegance in its finest form. For anyone looking for a unique gift to express their love, admiration or dedication to someone special, there is also a green amethyst that is more subtle in color than the purple. It subtly does not in any way lessen its beauty.
