9ct rose gold amethyst pendant with diamond stirrup 330

February brings a glimmer a colour, with purple crocuses scattered across the lawn and the tiny violets hidden amongst the moss. So I am going to start this year by looking at the kaleidoscope of colours available to jewellers and with that said what better way to celebrate this month by looking at the glorious rich hues associated with the shades of purple stones found in jewellery?

9ct white gold tanzanite & diamond cluster pendant with chain 495 earrings 870

We often associate February and Valentines with red roses although violets are the birth flower for this month. So I thought I should include the beautiful tanzanite gemstone which captures flashes of violets and blues.

9ct yellow gold amethyst & diamond cluster ring 245 earrings 195

Amethyst, the birthstone for the month of February, is perhaps the most well known gemstone which has these purple and lavender hues. Its deep violet colours is often remarked to best suit those with a darker complexion whereas the pastel shades perhaps better suited to a paler skin or red hair.

Lavender quartz silver drop earrings 79 pendant 110

When I saw some most unusual soft polished lavender quartz pendant and earrings they would be perfect for this purple kaleidoscope. They cleverly imitate the look of lavender jade which is quite rare and also very expensive.
