February Birthstone Bracelet - Amethyst and Onyx
Birthstone jewellery is a beautiful keepsake to honour the ones we love, and the ones we've lost. A precious gemstone to represent each month of the year
Amethyst and Onyx are the two birthstones for February.
Amethyst is part of the Quartz family and is one of the most revered stones in history. It has been used in many ways over time, including warding off the effects of alcohol, as a symbol of royalty and wealth. Amethyst is the gemstone of the 6th wedding anniversary
Onyx, a variety of Quartz called Chalcedony, is not only the birthstone of February, but also the gemstone of the 7th wedding anniversary. Used in ancient times during battle as it was thought to bring strength and stamina.
Crafted with 8mm faceted Amethyst, Onyx and Lava and stainless steel beads and bead caps. Please contact us if you would like a gold or rose gold stainless steel bead. Please note - bead caps are only available in silver stainless steel, but can be left off if required.
The origin of birthstones are as old as they are mysterious. Whilst the first official Birthstone list was created in 1912, it's thought that its origins go back much further! About 3,000 back. In the book of Exodus a breastplate is described to be adorned with 12 precious stones. It was then theorised that these 12 stones represented the 12months of the year. The history is quite interesting and you can read more about Birthstones over on the BLOG.
Wear & Care
Your aromatherapy bracelet is made for use with theraputic grade essential oils (we recommend and love doTERRA). Simply place one or two drops onto your fingers and massage into the Lava Beads. Allow the oil to be absorbed by the Lava before inhaling the beautiful aroma.
The scent will remain on your stone for up to 3 days depending on the oil. Simply layer additional oils to change or add to the scent.
Please be careful to avoid oils coming into contact with other elements of the lava jewellery as they may tarnish over time.
Semi-precious and precious gemstones require a little more TLC than stainless steel or metallic jewellery - please avoid wearing your gemstones whilst cleaning as the chemicals may damage the stones.
Should your bracelet break within 3 months of purchase, we will offer one free restring. The cost of postage to return the item to us is at the expense of the buyer. Oleander Place will return the bracelet to you via regular mail.
Please ensure that you return as many beads as possible as we can only replace a max of 3 gemstone beads. The rest will be made up of lava beads.
Due to the size of the beads, and other elements used in our diffuser jewellery, we do not recommend these for children under 3 years old.
