The Intoxicating Beauty of Amethyst Jewellery Designs
In the Greek language, the word amethyst means ‘not intoxicated’ or ‘sober’, which comes from an old belief that the stone has the power to protect the wearer from drunkenness. Whether the stone prevents drunkenness or not, jewellery made from it is sure to intoxicate you with its beauty and sheen. Take a look at the amethyst jewellery designs offered by BlueStone and you will know what we mean. The elegantly and artfully designs earrings, rings, pendants, and other pieces of amethyst jewellery in our collection surely give you a happy high.
Amethyst Jewellery through Ages
In the world of gemstones, amethyst has a long and rich history to boast of. Traditionally, the colour purple has been associated with royalty and unsurprisingly, amethyst was a stone of the kings and monarchs in the medieval period. It was greatly favoured by Ancient Egyptians. Ancient Greeks not only wore amethyst as jewellery but also embedded it in goblets because they believed that the stone had the power to prevent intoxication.
Amethysts are the most popular and perhaps the most valued stone in the quartz family. Though it is typically associated with purple, the colour of amethysts can range from pale lavender to rich violet. The stone was worn by soldiers in the medieval period and Anglican bishops, among many others. Coming to the Orient, the Tibetans associated amethysts with Buddha and they made purple rosaries with this stone. In olden days, it was considered to be one the cardinal stones and was as valuable just as diamonds, rubies, and emeralds. Amethysts fell from this royal status and became less precious with large deposits found in Brazil, Uruguay, and other neighbouring countries.
