If you have a friend or loved one who has a February birthday, which is represented by the amethyst stone, or know someone who loves the color purple, treat her to a piece of high-quality amethyst and sterling silver jewelry. You can find the gemstone and silver combination in a wide range of jewelry options, such as bracelets, pendants, necklaces, rings and earrings. 

Amethyst, which is a type of quartz, is a precious gemstone featuring various shades of purple and violet for a multi-dimensional look. The stone is also known to have spiritual healing properties and is often also associated with royalty. 

When it comes to matching amethyst with different metals, sterling silver is a good match as it complements the cool tones in the stone. Since both sterling silver and amethyst are known for the their long-lasting durability, a piece of jewelry featuring both elements can be enjoyed for years to come.

You can treat a special female in your life to a piece of amethyst and silver jewelry for any type of special event or occasion, including birthdays, holidays, graduations, anniversaries, bridal and baby showers, and weddings. Here are some ideas to get you started:

1. Bracelet 

When it comes to bracelets, amethyst and silver makes an eye-catching duo. Gemstone bracelets come in a wide variety of styles, such as cuffs, bangles, links, and beaded. As one idea, choose either a thin or wide sterling silver bangle that is embedded with amethyst stones all around it.

As another idea, buy the recipient an amethyst charm to go on her sterling silver charm bracelet. Since charms come in an array of shapes, such as hearts, squares and even animals, you can completely customize the look of the gift. 

If you're crafty, make your own bracelet by threading alternating amethyst and sterling silver beads onto a stretchy cord. You can also include other types of gemstones beads, such as rose quartz or jade.

2. Earrings 

Another way to show someone that you care is with a pair of amethyst and sterling silver earrings. They also come in a range of options, depending on the gift recipient's personal style. Ideas include bold chandelier style, either short or long drops, beaded hoops, and dainty studs. 

You can go with a streamlined, modern look, or choose a vintage-inspired pair featuring lacy sterling silver filigree details. Also, consider shopping antique stores or second-hand shops for authentic heirloom-quality amethyst and silver earrings.
