Our Silver Amethyst Oval Locket is the perfect gift for someone who is after a traditional locket with a bit of added sparkle.
This oval locket has beautiful etched floral detailing. At the centre of one of the flowers sits a little amethyst stone giving the locket a bit of sparkle and colour.
Lockets never go out of fashion and have always been an everyday favourite. In Ancient times it was believed that by carrying something that belonged to a loved one it would keep them in close spiritual contact with that person. Nowadays we still carry that sentiment with us, we put pictures in our lockets to keep those special people close to heart.
For the finishing touch just add a tiny photograph, a lock of hair or a miniature hand written note.
All Silver Scene jewellery comes lovingly presented in a gift box.
About the stone:
Amethyst is the Birthstone for February and also the Horoscope stone for Pisces.
Amethyst comes from the Greek word “amethystos” translated and “not drunken” as it was believed to be a strong antidote for drunkenness. Wine goblets were often carved from the stone.
In the English Middle Ages, it was considered a symbol of royalty and used to decorate English regalia. Until the 18th century it was one of the most valuable stones along with diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald.
Amethyst is thought of as a protective stone and helps purify the mind and clear negative thoughts. It also helps with stress and anxiety and is a very calming stone.
