Complete the look of any outfit with a beautiful amethyst necklace. The traditional hue of this rich gemstone is a deep purple, with variations running from a lighter lilac to even a faint green, allowing you to find the right jewelry to complement your wardrobe.
Le Vian, EFFY Collection, and Avalonia Road are just a few designer names offering their own spin on the amethyst necklace. Sterling silver is a wonderful option for those looking for a white gold alternative. A chic cushion amethyst pendant provides a modern twist on more traditional settings, with the gemstone framed by a bezel set design that highlights the gorgeous purple. An understated sterling silver chain ensures all eyes are drawn to the pendant, whose stone is expertly treated to enhance its natural beauty. Other sterling silver designs may include diamond accents, multiple amethyst stones, or even a hint of yellow gold to provide a unique contrast.
White gold jewelry has the appearance of silver with all the lasting qualities and value of gold. A pear-cut amethyst necklace looks stunning surrounded by sparkling diamond accents. A similar look is a pear-cut drop necklace, which displays the perfectly chiseled stone in all its reflective glory, only adding diamond accents at the bail. This cut is ideal for wearing with formal attire and would look incredible paired with matching drop earrings.
Although yellow gold is often overlooked in favor of cooler jewelry tones, the warmer tone is often integrated into white gold and sterling silver designs to bring out the color of the stone. A sterling silver heart pendant, for example, may have a streak of yellow gold in the setting to add interest. A teardrop amethyst framed in a thin band of yellow gold looks striking set with diamonds and white gold. Women preferring the look of yellow gold alone will love the gemstone necklaces that embrace the warmer metal, such as a delicate floral design, diamond-accented dragonfly pendant, or a simple oval-cut stone. Rose gold is another option, and one that looks amazing with vintage-inspired designs.
