A birthstone for those born in February, amethyst is a striking semi-precious gemstone which has traditionally symbolised sobriety and restraint – its name comes from the Greek ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated”. More recently, amethyst has been associated with pure, loving relationships and deep emotional bonds.
A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock, both from asteroids and the moon. Some claim that it aids in controlling one’s ego and selfishness, as well as in gaining a strong mental and spiritual clarity.
A birthstone for July, ruby has stood as a symbol of power and success since antiquity; 8th-century Arabic mystics decreed that dreams of rubies foretold good fortune and great satisfaction in life. Thanks to their traditional blood-red hue, rubies have been tied to life and health throughout history – ancient Burmese warriors even believed that these gemstones rendered their wearers near-immortal.
Attached to an 18 inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
