14 Pieces Of Amethyst Jewelry For February Birthdays

The perfect gifts to channel your inner psychic

January came and went, and here we are, already into the second month of 2017. Which means that while the deep red garnet ruled as January’s birthstone, it’s time for a new stone to step into the spotlight. February brings us the amethyst, a type of quartz often seen in a stunning variety of violets, from deep purples to the lightest of lavenders.

The amethyst is a gorgeous stone that, since ancient times, has been thought to increase psychic abilities, spirituality, and intuition by creating a strong connection between the earth's plane and other spiritual planes. It’s often used in crystal healing to create a sense of peace and happiness.

However, in addition to its psychic and spiritual powers, the amethyst, the ancient Greeks believed, protected one from drunkenness—so think of it as a thoughtful gift for the birthday girl who’s got major party plans. The word amethyst is derived from the Greek word ametusthos, which translates to “not intoxicated.” Hello, functional fashion! 

Whether raw in form or polished, we rounded up 14 totally rad amethyst rings, earrings, necklaces, and more for the special Aquarius (and Pisces, too!) in your life.
