February’s birthstone, amethyst, is the most precious form of quartz. It is the colour of royalty (purple) and is said to represent dignity and piety. A powerful stone, amethyst is said to bring courage and tranquility to all who celebrate a birthday this month. Flanked by three smaller Swarovski® crystals and surrounded by a Celtic art-inspired design, the colourful Swarovski® crystal at the centre is a token of good fortune—not just in your birthday month, but for the whole year. And with the help of a bezel kit (not included), your coin will easily become a cherished piece of jewellery that expresses who you are.
The reverse design by artist Pandora Young is an intersection of art and mathematics, and features a stylized pattern arranged according to the base-six system. Inspired by the Celtic triskele, the engraved art incorporates three clear Swarovski® crystals into our birthstone celebration of those born in February (amethyst), as represented by the gem-like Swarovski® crystal at the centre of the coin. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
- Make it a personal celebration. We’re making birthdays extra special with our 12-part birthstone celebration! At the heart of every coin is a large gem-toned Swarovski® crystal that represents a birth month.
- Four Swarovski® crystals are embedded on this coin: three small clear ones within the engraved pattern, and a larger one that adds more colourful sparkle than the actual birthstone
- A piece to treasure—and wear: With the help of a bezel kit (not included), each 27 mm coin can be turned into a necklace or pendant. It’s part collectible, part jewellery—a great statement piece that expresses who you are.
