About Amethyst Earrings

Buying Guide

When you are shopping for amethyst earrings, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the amethyst. The more vivid and bright the lavender purple hue, the more valuable the amethyst. Gemvara's amethyst is a rich purple that complements both warm and cool colors. Cut is even more important than clarity, since a well-cut amethyst will dance with light.

Because all Gemvara earrings are made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality amethyst to perfectly suit your design.

What is the meaning of amethyst in the language of gems? Amethyst is the gem of sobriety and peace. Its name comes from the Greek "amethystos" which means "not drunken." They served wine in amethyst goblets during long banquets because they believed this wine-colored gem had the power to keep guests sober. Tibetan Buddhists use amethyst rosaries to enhance the peace and tranquility of meditation.

Amethyst is the February birthstone and the 6th and 17th anniversary gem.

With a color that complements every metal, amethyst earrings often crafted in sterling silver, white, yellow, or rose gold and platinum. Because the royal hue of your amethyst earrings will catch the eye, you will want to closely match the color of an amethyst necklace or an amethyst ring.

Amethyst is a very durable gem perfect for everyday wear. Clean amethyst earrings with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the stone where dust can collect.

Gemvara's fine quality amethyst earrings are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.

Jewelry Care

With a little care, your fine jewelry will keep its good looks forever. The best way to clean your jewelry is by soaking it in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of ordinary dish detergent. If needed, use a soft brush where dust and soap can collect. Then just rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.

You won't have to clean your jewelry as often if you put it on after applying hairspray, perfume, and cosmetics. Be sure to remove your jewelry before strenuous activities like sports. Keep jewelry away from chlorine and other household chemicals. Always make sure it is dry and clean by wiping with a cloth before putting it away.

To protect the beauty of your jewelry, don't keep it in a tangle in a jewelry box. Remember, gems can scratch metal or each other. When you travel, make sure your jewelry pieces don't rub against each other in your bag. Store each piece separately or wrap each one in tissue paper or a soft cloth.
