12 Pieces Of Amethyst Jewelry For February Birthdays

The necessary gift for the ultimate party girl

Goodbye, garnets! The arrival of February brings a new birthstone to take the spotlight: the radiant amethyst. A stone of the quartz variety, the amethyst is famous for its dazzling purple color, though it can range from a deep purple to a pale red-violet—and even achieve a pale green shade when heated.

This calming, healing gem has quite an extensive list of metaphysical meanings and uses—from increasing psychic ability and creativity to enhancing meditation and purifying the chakras. However, probably our favorite amethyst fun fact is that it's believed to help you stay sober(ish). Its name is derived from the Greek word ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated,” with an ancient legend suggesting it will help prevent drunkenness and overindulgence. Which means that wearing one might actually reap some benefits while you down all of those hot toddies to stay warm (or, you know, throw a killer birthday party).

We rounded up 12 unique pieces of amethyst jewelry for the Aquarius and Pisces ladies—and the party girls—in your life. Check them out, below.
