10 Fabulous February Birthstone Amethyst Jewelry

This week we are celebrating the amethyst, the birthstone of February. The ancient Greeks believed that amethysts were dyed purple by the tears of Dionysus, the god of wine and celebration. Amethyst also has a rich history in the Catholic church as papal rings were amethyst because purple was the royal color that symbolized Christ. The name amethyst comes from the Greek word “amethustos” which actually means “sober”, and the stone was thought to prevent people from being drunk by instilling a serious mind. Aren’t amethysts fun?!
