AMETHYST & STARFISH STUD DROP EARRINGS Sterling Silver
One-of-a-kind amethyst & starfish charm stud dangle earrings
Amethyst | The traditional birthstone for February, Amethyst is associated with St Valentine and with faithful love. The word Amethyst comes from the Greek word ametusthos, which means “not intoxicated” and throughout history Amethyst has been linked to preventing drunkenness and over-indulgence.
Obviously the Ancient Greeks and Romans had their own special take on this, routinely inlaying Amethyst in their goblets to prevent the wine within from having the power to intoxicate (rather than using it to help them stop drinking in the first place!)
Today amethyst is associated with contentment, wisdom and understanding. It is a talisman for focus and success that is believed to calm hot tempers.
Small Starfish | Starfish are pretty amazing creatures. In fact, if Gloria Gaynor’s 70s hit ‘I Will Survive’ could have an animal emblem, a starfish would be a pretty good choice! They have been around for at least 450 million years, they are found in all the world’s oceans, in the deepest and shallowest waters, and if they are attacked they can shed limbs to escape from their predator and re-grow them again afterwards.
