Cheers to the regal gem, amethyst
14K Rose Gold Purple & Pink Amethyst
That lovely purple, shading from the palest lilac to good deep violet and royal hues, is what gives amethyst its common name. Ancient Greeks thought it looked rather like wine, and from there flights of fancy took off and led them and the Romans to think that maybe the gem could be used to ward off drunkenness. So, they named it amethystos, the Koine Greek word for “not intoxicated.” People would wear jewelry made from it, or drink from glasses carved from it. Chances are they got drunk regardless, but at least they did so in style!Legends aside, amethyst has been the gemstone of royalty since its discovery around 3000 B.C. It’s the oldest stone in the Crown Jewels of England and at times amethyst gem-stones have been valued more than diamonds. Here various cuts of regal amethyst, from teardrops to fancy are set in warm, glowing 14K rose gold. Perfect for celebrat-ing the princess who makes you giddy.
