Amethyst is purple quartz and is found all over the world but most of the amethyst that is used in jewellery comes from Brazil. It varies in colour from violet and red and the name ‘amethyst’ comes from the Ancient Greek, derived from the word ‘amethustos’, which means “not drunken.” Ancient wearers believed the gemstone could protect them from drunkenness!
Throughout history, amethyst has been associated with many myths, legends, religions, and numerous cultures. English regalia were decorated with amethysts during the Middle Ages to symbolise royalty.
Some historical accounts say that Saint Valentine had an amethyst ring carved with an image of Cupid.
Today, many wearers simply prize the amethyst gemstone for its beautiful shade of purple and the way it complements both warm and cool colours.
