A really pretty 9ct gold necklace with five heart shaped amethyst drops with bow tops. It would have been a gift of love although there is a belief that the amethyst protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and made drinking vessels decorated with it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication! However it is also the traditional birthstone for February.
