This natural amethyst vintage jewelry set is set in .925 sterling silver. Amethyst is the birthstone for February and the gemstone for the astrological sign of Pisces. Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. Purple has long been considered a royal color, which is why amethyst has been so much in demand throughout history. It was adopted by the Catholic and other churches in the Middle Ages as one of the stones of ornamentation. Amethyst became the stone of bishops and some still wear amethyst rings.
This jewelry set in particular is not only of a unique, artistic design, but also features tiny aquamarine crystals in the center, which serve to enhance and play off the violet hue of the surrounding gemstones., which spray outward in rays of light from the center of the ring. The silver setting adds an attractive air of novelty, vintage and avant-garde style to the patina.
The Greeks believed amethyst gems could prevent intoxication, while medieval European soldiers wore amethyst amulets as protection in battle. Amethyst was considered to be a strong antidote against drunkenness and the gemstone still symbolizes sobriety. Ceremonial wine is frequently drunk from goblets fashioned from it.
From the British Crown Jewels to ancient Egyptian royalty, and even Catherine the Great of Russia, this beautiful purple gemstone figured prominently. Indeed, it was the Russian Empress Catherine who sent thousands of workers to the Uralian mines to search for the best quality amethysts, thus creating the Siberian amethyst. Today, it is still a lovely and valued gemstone, and we know you’ll enjoy giving this set to the beloved “empress” in your life, or wearing it yourself if that describes you!
