Royal Amethyst Trefoil Pendant
Regal and elegant, this trefoil pendant features three amethysts circling a central 6mm 'Rose de France' amethyst. The pendant is hand forged from Argentium, a tarnish resistant form of sterling silver that is 100% recycled. Finished length is 18" with 1" of adjustable chain.
The trefoil is an ancient motif, most commonly recognized in the Gothic architecture of medieval cathedrals. We fell in love with it as an expression of the threefold nature of the world: land, sea and sky, the triple goddess, and the holy Trinity. The triple-lobed trefoil is an archetype that evokes balance, interconnection, and harmony.
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.
