About 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.


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 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.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice slimplicity This is a nice simple ring just not a wow ring. I liked it yet I didn't because for me it didn't have the wow factor. It was well designed I thought because it really didn't turn side ways on my finger so much if at all from the large stone. Also the stone color amethyst was a nice shade not too dark and not too light. I sent back because I decided other rings I had ordered were prettier. I also found it true to size. 01-26-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy I just received this ring, the website doesn't do it justice. Stunning cut and the sterling is extremely shiny. The ring is very comfortable, excellent product for the price. 02-12-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely A very pretty ring at a fantastic price! Nice purple shade on the amethyst, and a great setting that lets light in to show the faceting. It is difficult to tell from the photos, but the underside of the gallery has 4 prongs securely anchoring this stone to the shank. Also, the ring sits 5/16ths of an inch off the finger. I gave this ring 4 stars due to sizing...I ordered the 6 which is my normal size and it spins. This does not happen with other rings/ larger stones so sizing is a bit off. Again, a half size here would be perfect! For the price of shipping both ways it may not be worth sending back for a smaller one. 10-14-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super color! My husband purchased this ring off my wish list. The amethyst is a fantastic deep purple and the facets really cause the stone to sparkle in the sun. Light, comfortable, and outstanding value. I love it! 08-15-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it!! I bought the Citrine. Vivid color. My only disappointment is I ordered size 8 but according to my ring sizer, it is a 7 1/2. I can wear it on other fingers but was dissapointed that I did not receive he size I ordered. That is why I scored it a 4 verses 5. 08-14-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning! This is a stunning ring! I bought the amethyst ring and the stone is the prettiest shade of purple! It is just as it is pictured, and the checkerboard faceting just makes it sparkle beautifully. I love the silver rope design, and it is very smooth, shiny and comfortable to wear. I loved the ring so much that I was very happy to find the matching pendant, J305771, and ordered it (very pleased with it, too!). I love amethyst, and this ring, along with the matching pendant, are both fabulous - worn separately or together! 03-20-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding It's hard to imagine a prettier ring at this price-point. The style is clean and contemporary and showcases a 10mm checkerboard faceted stone with a slight dome at the top. The silver is ribbed stylishly and the rope border around the stone adds a designer-like touch. I bought the black agate and it is sleek and shiny. I wear this as a companion piece to a D.Y. onyx enhancer my husband gave me. It is that beautiful at a fraction of the cost. What a great buy! 07-14-12
