Amethyst Dove Necklace
This lyrical necklace is hand fabricated in Argentium, a tarnish-resistant sterling silver that is 100% recycled, and features a juicy amethyst cabochon. The forged centerpiece measures about 2.25" wide, and the chain measures approximately 18" with about 1" of adjustable link (total of 19").

Amethyst is the traditional birthstone for the month of February, as well as for the astrological sign of Aquarius. It is also the gemstone associated with the 6th wedding anniversary. The name Amethyst comes from the ancient Greek and means "not intoxicated," as the stone was believed to prevent drunkenness. Amethyst also honors Artemis, the Greek Goddess of the Hunt and Diana, the Roman Goddess of the Moon, and Protector of Animals. It is a stone of spirituality and contentment, known for its metaphysical abilities to still the mind and enhance the intuition. Amethyst initiates wisdom and greater understanding, and is considered a stone of compassion and empathy.
