Jewelry is a wonderful form of self-expression. Some choose to wear jewelry to compliment an outfit, while other choose jewelry for deeper more meaningful reasons. Consider jewelry with the amethyst stone to fulfill both of these needs. People have been wearing jewelry for thousands of years specifically for the health benefits. Once thought of to heal people and keep them cool headed, medieval soldiers incorporated amethyst in their amulets to protect them in battle. Jewelry incorporating this semi-precious stone can help even out the wearer’s temperament.
“Jewelry is a very personal thing…it should tell a story about the person’s who’s wearing it.”
