Amethyst Engagement Rings

Amethyst Buyer's Guide

  • Amethyst is the gem of peace. Because purple is the color of royalty, amethyst rings were long reserved only for kings, queens, and bishops.
  • St. Valentine wore an amethyst ring carved with an image of cupid, making an amethyst engagement ring a very romantic choice.
  • The most important value factor for an amethyst ring is the color of the amethyst, which should be a medium purple with flashes of pink. Pale lilac and deep violet are more affordable.
  • Siberia is a legendary source of amethyst but is no longer producing: today most top quality amethyst comes from Brazil, Uruguay, and several countries in Africa.
  • Gemvara's amethyst is a pure medium purple amethyst from Brazil with cutting so exceptional that it dances with brilliance. Each amethyst we sell is hand-selected to be of engagement ring quality.
  • Some amethyst on the market today is man-made. These stones are less rare and so less valuable. Gemvara does not sell synthetic amethyst.
  • Amethyst is the birthstone for February, the 6th and 17th anniversary gem, and the zodiac gem for Pisces.
  • Amethyst rings are durable and great for everyday wear. Clean with mild dish soap: soak or gently use a soft brush to scrub behind the stone where dust can collect. Avoid exposure to high heat, which may cause your amethyst's lovely color to fade.
