Purple is more than the color of the semi-precious Amethyst stone, it is a color associated with royalty, victory, and unparalleled beauty. From simple, unpolished stones strung together in a chunky necklace to stunning fine jewelry featuring the glorious color purple, the stone is a gorgeous choice for a gift.
Amethyst is traditionally associated with birthstones and often featured in jewelry to commemorate the birth of a child. A simple gold pendant, shaped like a girl or a boy and detailed with the semi-precious stone is a beautiful way to remember a special day. As a birthday gift for an older child, a gold ring, featuring the stone, is ideal. Pair with simple drop earrings for an understated and elegant look.
The semi-precious stone is equally beautiful in a simple necklace. Amethyst beads, strung on fine wire or a gold chain are stunning with a sweetheart neckline. A larger pendant or locket with the stone as a focal point is a beautiful attention grabber.
Update the traditional engagement ring by adding several small amethysts around a larger diamond. Create an updated concept for the engagement ring by forgoing the diamond entirely, instead featuring the soft purple stone set in gleaming sterling silver or brilliant 18K gold.
Bangles are another beautiful way to show off the purple stone. Set in silver and layered with several other bangles, the look is fresh and modern. A wider banded bracelet in gold with larger chunks of the stone is simple and traditional.
For a touch of soft purple at the ear, turn to earrings in gold or silver featuring the semi-precious stone. Elegant hoops, small drops, or larger chandeliers are all elegant and fun ways to show off this beautiful stone. Pair the earrings with a simple matching chain and watch for complete look.
