Amethyst Earrings


About Amethyst Earrings

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.
