February Birthstone Spotlight: Amethyst

Feb 15, 2012

Around this time of year, everyone is getting tired of the gray weather and bare trees. That’s why we get excited about February’s birthstone, the amethyst! This lovely gemstone comes in all ranges of purple that can give the right punch of color to any situation.

Psychological studies show that lighter shades of purple can relieve tension and help promote creativity, just the solution for those winter blues. Also, purple is not a color commonly found in nature so that makes the amethyst all the more unique. So sport your February pride with these beautiful and simple pear-cut amethyst and diamond drop earrings.

Amethysts are also known for being the gemstone of the powerful and rich as it was a favored gemstone among royalty back in the day. If you were born in February, here are a few of today’s rich and famous people who share this birth month with you:

February 1st – Lisa Marie Presley
February 2nd – Farrah Fawcett
February 3rd – Isla Fisher
