An Aquarius is usually seen as a deep thinking, highly intellectual individual who loves to help others and this deep thinking usually leads them to becoming effective problem solvers. Although an Aquarius is often shy and quiet, they can also be energetic and sociable too. They see the world as their oyster, which is full of possibilities and often find themselves bored if they are not being mentally stimulated. Their desire for freedom also means that they hate being tied down and value their independence, making an Aquarius quite the free spirit and a lot of fun to be around.

Trollbeads Charms for Aquarians

Trollbeads Silver Bead depicting the Water-Bearer, Aquarian symbol of the zodiac from Greek myths

The Trollbeads Aquarius Silver Bead illustrates the symbol often associated with this star sign, represented in most cultures as a man pouring water from a vessel.

The Greek legend states that a young man named Ganymede was whisked away to the heavens by Zeus, where he went on to serve as cup-bearer to the gods for eternity.

The Trollbeads Star of Protection Bead features a stunning turquoise, the chosen stone for those born under the sign of Aquarius. As the name states, it is said to offer protection and guidance to its wearer.

Birthstone Jewellery – January & February

In our previous blog post about Capricorn birthstone jewellery, we noted that the birthstone for January is the vibrant garnet. But what about Aquarians born in February?

Well, you’re in luck: the birthstone for this month is the beautiful amethyst. A classic stone with a rich history, the purple gem is often seen as a mysterious, exotic treasure.

Amethyst actually comes from the Greek word ‘amethystos’, translating to ‘not drunken’; it was believed that amethyst protected you from getting drunk, making it a symbol of stability and peace today. Many believe it to bring calm and serenity to its wearer.

It is also said that amethyst is the favourite gemstone of Saint Valentine, making it the perfect gift for a romantic Aquarian partner!

We have a range of February birthstone jewellery across our site, including our own Birthstone collection, all inclusive of this stunning purple gem. Any of these pieces would make a meaningful gift for those born in this month, but make sure to consider their taste so that you get it just right. Do they own a Nomination bracelet? Do they prefer gold or silver jewellery? Make sure to mull these things over first.

We’ve selected just a few of our favourite pieces for you to peruse below…
