STARBURST Necklace | February | Amethyst
From the day she is born,
Until no more,
She is her own star,
Even in the darkness.
The Starburst Necklace - an ode to your birthstone, and the beautiful power of what is within you.
These necklaces celebrate chameleon qualities of being understated yet bold, simple yet detailed, and elusive but honest.
They subtly incorporate our birthstones, without being offensive or pretentious. If you don't fancy your designated birthstone, you may choose another stone calling you. As we always say, the crystal chooses you, not the other way around.
We as humans experience many phases throughout our lives and are symbolic of stars ourselves. Despite there being phases of darkness, we continue shining.
So choose your talisman, and wear it as a reminder every day that you are bold, confident, forgiving and worthy - Just like the starbursts that light up our galaxy each evening.

The name Amethyst translates in Greek to, “not drunken”. But before you write this one off as “not for you” due to your Friday night Pinot habit, you should note that this potentially odd name comes from that time when angry Greek God Bacchus poured one out for his fallen homie, turning a clear crystal purple with the sweet nectar of the gods. Those ancient philosophers could have been onto something with the belief that it could spare you from public drunkenness. Maybe it’s time Amethyst replaced a penis straw as the Hen’s Night must have…
Ancient angry gods and public intoxication notwithstanding, the February birthstone’s healing properties are plentiful. Its purifying energy is linked to cleansing the mind of negative thoughts and releasing addictive behaviours. It’s also helpful in making a clear connection between planes, making it excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. Amethyst is used to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience and clairvoyance and communication with angels.
Amethyst is said to aid creative thinking and spiritual awareness. It is also a protective stone and thought to reduce nightmares. So, rather than watching “one more episode” on Netflix next time insomnia stripes, try placing amethyst stones underneath your pillow before you go to bed and give into the peace and calm this stunning stone can bring.
Using this Pantone Colour of the Year (2018) hued stone to decorate the home is a choice many make for its good looks alone. Aside from the fact that an amethyst in the family room can assist in familial bonding and in the office can bring intuition for making tough decisions and assist in stress-relief for long working days, its uplifting energy can really help tie a room together.

Pendant: 25mm diameter on fixed loop, 2cm drop down from necklace. There is a small hole in the back of the pendant for the crystal energy to move freely to your skin.
Bespoke Chain: 45cm chain + 5cm extension. The clasp is able to be linked up to the decorative chain to adjust the necklace shorter if preferred.

Gold Varieties | 925 Sterling Silver Base, with either 14k Yellow Gold or 14k Rose Gold Vermeil
Care: We stand behind our product excellence, however, due to the nature of individual skin acidity and product use, cannot recommend extended exposure to water.
We have chosen gold vermeil which offers a 925 sterling silver as a base metal, and twice the thickness of standard gold plating. With this comes better durability, without the price tag of solid gold.
The disc pendant itself is a high polish finish so will show scratches. A soft polishing cloth will rectify this to an extent.
Comes packaged in a gift box, with a wax seal in the corresponding colour of the gemstone.
Always remember to treat your jewellery gently and with care.
We stand behind our product excellence, however, due to individual skin acidity and stone characteristics, cannot recommend extended exposure to water, especially salt or chlorine water.
Store your jewellery in a soft pouch to keep other items from scratching it. To clean your jewellery, wipe it with a soft, damp cloth and dry immediately. Alternatively, a polishing cloth is suitable.
BEADED + RAW STONE BRACELETS | Never overstretch the elastic band - stretching it over your hands is okay. Remove your bracelets before being exposed to chlorine or salt water, these can lead to the stones becoming dull and the bracelet deteriorating more quickly. Remove your bracelet before sleeping and participating in vigorous physical activity. Avoid direct contact with hairspray, makeup, lotion and perfume.
SILVER, GOLD + ROSE GOLD JEWELLERY | We have chosen gold fill rather than plating as this comes better durability, without the price tag of solid gold.
Most of our jewellery is a fine delicate style, and being handmade, we do not recommended for hard every day wear.
Avoid direct contact with hairspray, makeup, lotion and perfume.
We offer our jewellery in sterling silver, gold, and rose gold to accomodate all styles and tastes.
All our silver jewellery is 925 sterling.
All gold and rose gold is gold fill. Unlike solid gold jewelry, gold-filled jewellery is composed of a solid layer of gold that is bonded to a base of another metal, in our case, sterling silver. Gold fill jewellery allows us a more pocket friendly price point, without compromising quality as some gold plated jewellery can.
