About Amethyst
Amethyst

Stone Information & Mining

Amethyst is the purple variety of the quartz mineral species. It's the gem that's most commonly associated with the color purple, even though there are other purple gemstones such as sapphire and tanzanite. Its purple color can be cool and bluish, or a reddish purple that's sometimes referred to as "raspberry."

Legend & Lore

Because of its wine-like color, early Greek legends associated amethyst with Bacchus, the god of wine. Other legends reflected beliefs that amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in business affairs. Fine amethysts have been set in religious jewelry and royal crown jewels for ages. It was once considered equal in value to ruby, emerald, and sapphire. It's no wonder that fine amethyst adorns the fingers of bishops as well as the coronation regalia of British royalty.

Color

Amethyst's purple color can range from a light lilac to a deep, intense royal purple and from brownish to vivid. Amethyst also commonly shows what is called color zoning, which in the case of amethyst usually consists of angular zones of darker to lighter color.

Amethyst

Cleaning

Amethyst can be safely cleaned with warm soapy water. Ultrasonic cleaners are usually safe except in the rare instances where a stone is dyed or treated by fracture filling. Steam cleaning is not recommended, and amethyst should not be subjected to heat.

15.00 ct tw Garnet and Amethyst Fancy Cut Sterling Ring 4.3 5 27 27
Lopsided Fit This ring was odd... although the stones were lovely and vibrant, the entire shape and fit of the ring was off. I think the size was way too large and the amount of stones made the ring look insanely gaudy. Also, when I put it on my finger it did not sit well, in fact, it sat kind of lopsided which made for an ill-looking, as well as ill-fitting, ring. Ultimately this ring was returned. This ring is in dire need of a prescription to get better soon before I decide to purchase again. 03-29-14
Bold Ring... I've had this ring on my wish list for some time so I was super excited to receive it, it's a pretty ring with sparkle for sure, but not exactly as I had imagined. The stones are pretty, but to me the colors blend and it just looks like a big square on my finger. I love the bold size, but once on the finger it twirls around, making it uncomfortable. I'll give it another try, but for the money I want to be thrilled with my purchase. Purchased my usual size 7 and it's difficult to get on, but once on the thin band causes it to roll, sizing up or down wouldn't work. 03-08-14
BEAUTIFUL PIECE This is a stunning piece of jewelry. I get more compliments on it than anything I have. The only problem I have had is I have returned it 3 times, but replaced with the same thing. Each time I have returned it is because one of the outside stones had fallen out. It seems that they are not set in real strong. However, I do wear it daily, everyday all day. I get more compliments out of this ring than I do my 3.5 carat wedding ring. I currently am waiting on a replacement and have contacted a jeweler who is going to put a casing around the edge for me to protect it from now on. You won't be disappointed in this ring its beautiful. The added bonus is it just happens to be my children and grandchildren birthstones....great coincidence!!!!! 03-04-14

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!! I JUST RECEIVED THIS RING, SINCE WHEN I ORDERED IT, IT WAS ON THE WAITLIST. I WEAR A SIZE 9, AND I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES WHEN I REMOVED IT FROM THE BOX..IT WAS SOOO VIBRANT IN AMETHYSTS AND GARNETS, AND REALLY HAD ALOT OF SPARKLE AND BLING!! I AM A QUEEN OF A RED HAT CLUB, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW IT OFF..IT'S NOT AT ALL TOO BIG, AS OTHERS STATED, BUT THEN AGAIN..I 'LOVE' BIG RINGS!! THIS IS DEFINITELY A KEEPER!! THANKS, AGAIN QVC FOR OUTDOING YOURSELF AGAIN!! IT'S ONE OF MY BEST PURCHASES EVER!! 01-24-14
WOW!!! Wow! I purchased this for my sister (no special occasion) and all I can say is WOW! It is huge! I honestly didn't expect this ring to be so big. But, it is NOT gawdy; just beautiful and very unique! My sister loved it! The colors are so rich and brilliant! 01-01-14
It's a keeper This is a stunning ring, the color combination is beautiful. My favorite color is purple and the amethyst and garnet look great together. In addition I like a big ring and thus definitely fits the bill. 12-24-13
BEAUTIFUL I ordered this ring after reading all of the reviews and I'm so glad that I did! When I opened the box, I couldn't stop staring at it! I bought it to wear on my middle finger and it fit perfectly. This is a very large ring and it's definitely a statement piece. I think that a woman's jewelry says alot about her personality and I'm one woman who is not afraid to wear a statement piece of jewelry. I definitely recommend buying this ring because you won't be disappointed! 11-08-13
Big Ring This is a really big, big, big ring. I do like it, but was not prepared for the size. I will keep it, and I will wear it. The stones are very pretty. I wish the ring was a bit smaller, but I do buy big rings. The big square covers about two fingers, but it is lovely. 10-16-13
Beautiful Ring I have no idea why anyone would have a complaint regarding this ring..It is enchanting and a remarkable value at this price...I only buy quality in rings, since gold is so high now I have decided to go with the silver...The picture does not do this ring justice.. Please, if you are on the fence due to the other comments made,, order this ring and you make the call on quality.....You wont regret it!!!!!!!! Also sizing was right on track.... 09-23-13
WOW Factor Wow was the first word that I said when I opened the box and saw this ring in person. I was very excited to wear it. I have worn this beautiful ring multiple times since I got it and received lots of complements each time. Love it! 09-13-13
