This glorious rose cut Amethyst pendant is embellished with traditional Henna designed silver work and hand made by skilled artisans. The delicate silver work perfectly compliments the intense natural beauty of this rich, deep purple amethyst.
Henna or 'Mehendi' as it is known in India, is the fine art of applying intricate designs on the skin using a mixture of henna, oil, sugar and lime juice. An ancient tradition used to adorn the body for special occasions, especially weddings. To see an Indian bride swathed in a stunning red sari, with hands arms and feet covered in these beautiful designs, is quite a sight!
Amethyst, the Birthstone for February, has been highly prized for centuries by a variety of cultures, including the ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Mesopotamians. It is thought to be both protective and calming, frequently associated with sleep. It is also believed to increase creativity and focus and to be a powerful source of energy for the wearer.
