Amethyst is one of the most popular gemstones and was once considered more precious than diamonds. It has long been used in jewellery. The word Amethyst is derived from the Greek ‘amethustos’ which means "not drunken" and the gemstone was used to ward off intoxication and bring clear-headedness and quick-wittedness to the wearer, a symbol of peace, protection and tranquility
The traditional colours of Amethysts vary from pale lilac to violet to red-violet through to a deep rich purple. The colour has strong meaning going back many centuries. The purple colour was associated with loyalty and it became symbolic with wealth and power
What is Amethyst
A variety of crystallized quartz. The Amethyst is found all over the world but the best examples come from Brazil, Uruguay and Zambia. Most of our Amethysts come from Africa.
The word Garnet comes from the Latin word Garanatus, meaning seed like. The beautiful rich red colour of these gems was thought to resemble the seeds of the pomegranate.
Beautiful Turquoise is the birthstone for December. It is one of the oldest gemstones used in jewellery since ancient times. It is believed that a Turquoise gemstone will protect the wearer from injury.

What Colour Stones Will Match What I’m Wearing?
Firstly it’s important to say that not everyone wants to match their jewellery to their outfit. Some people have a favourite pieces that they wear all day, everyday, but if you have a special outfit and you are looking for jewellery to set it off I hope this helps.
Some people like to mix it up a bit and wear clashing colours like blue with red or orange with pink this can look great when you get it right.

If however you are looking to match jewellery to an outfit here are some points to think about. Gemstones change in different lights, a Carnelian may appear quite rusty red by day but brown red by night. Translucent stones like Labradorite and Moonstone may only come into their own at night, when their natural iridescence shines through.

If you are going to be photographed then the camera light can affect the gemstone colour too. A gemstone that matched perfectly in daylight may be different in artificial light. My advice would be to think carefully about trying to find a stone that matches exactly and go for one that is close match or a contrast to what you are wearing.
Our Smoky Quartz earrings that Ting is wearing with her red dress look great as they contrast beautifully.
