Amethyst is one of our best selling gemstones and it's no surprise why! We love its gorgeous colouring which ranges from lilac, mauve to a rich, deep purple. It's perfect for those colourful and bold designs. Did you know amethyst is also February's birthstone? At Kernowcraft, we have a range of amethyst cabochons, faceted stones, beads and crystals to choose from for your unique jewellery designs.
In this blog post, we share with you some of our favourite amethyst designs by our wonderful customers and Facebook followers, to help inspire your designs. If you would like to feature in an upcoming blog post, tag us in your designs and use #Kernowcraft. You can find us on Instagram and Facebook.
