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.

Judith Ripka Amethyst and Pave' Black Diamonique Dome Ring 4.9 5 19 19
Sizing Striking ring, black and vivid purple, an eye catcher for sure. Sizing is critical on this one size up. 08-31-13
Eye Catching I received this ring today and am VERY HAPPY with my purchase. The ring fits perfectly on my finger, and the amethyst and pave are just beautiful. Thanks QVC!!! 08-13-13
Lovely Sparkle and Shape I wasn't sure I'd like the random placement and shapes of the amethyst, but it works well against the sparkle of the black diamonds. Nice-sized dome shape and comfortable size 7 ring 07-12-13
Wonderful Ring This is a piece that will get noticed! It is big, it has style, and it is unique. It is not the classic Ripka style, but rather a more edgy modern ring with recognizable Ripka elements. I love this so much, I am going back for the earrings. I only wish she did this in a cuff. The black dmq stones have a sheen to them that cannot be described. Almost like black mercury glass (if there is such a thing). It is a bold ring for sure, and if you are annoyed by stones on the sides of a ring, this may not be for you. I also have to say at $149, this is by far one of the better bargains in her present Q line. Thank you Judith, Allison and Brian for brining us this very unique design! 04-12-13
WOW! This is one of Judith's best! On the fence about this one for awhile, took the plunge when it went on sale. It is really a stunner! And such a unique design - so unusual. The black Diamonique adds a perfect backdrop to the deep, rich amethyst stones - they really pop against that background! Now for sizing....I am a 6 in most rings I buy from QVC, however some of Judith's rings are much too small for me. After reading reviews I ordered a 7, which was loose and although wouldn't just fall off my finger, had alot of extra room that made it uncomfortable to wear. I just got the 6 and it fits much better - still need to have help getting it off (a little lotion helps) but is really comfortable to wear. It is such a beautiful, different ring and I am sure that I will be wearing it often - it isn't just for good, but one I will wear with anything. I just may keep the size 7 for those times I just HAVE to wear this, but have swollen fingers........ 03-28-13
Beautiful Ring! I went back and forth for a few months on ordering this ring - did I want it, or didn't I??? It didn't really look that great in the video, but the reviews were all 5 STARS!! I even ordered it once, then cancelled it before it shipped. I finally ordered it when it went on easy pay, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! It is stunning! Sparkly, classy, sophistocated, unique, etc. The amethyst stones are a deep purple. It looks great with hematite jewelry. I normally wear a size 6 on my index and middle fingers. I ordered a size 7 and am so glad I did. It's a perfect fit. So I do suggest you order up one size. Way to go, Judith!! 03-23-13
Fun!! This ring is classy, yet whimsical. The quality of the amethyst stones is superb. Nice weight, nice quality, but not too serious. This is a special ring. Get it before it's gone. 02-13-13
Stunning Ring! I love it! This is such a beautiful ring. I love the way it sits on my finger and I love the amethyst stones set in the black Diamonique. It is just so pretty. I'm thinking that I might buy a smaller size for my ring finger too. I would say that it runs just a touch small. 02-06-13
Unique...Fabulous...Gorgeous...Stunning...Love It! My title says it all...what more can I say??!! The ring is a beautiful piece of art. It is unlike anything that Ms. Ripka has done & I hope she does more of it! I tried to add the earrings to my review as another recommendation...but it didn't take.

Sexy! I always admired this ring, because I love pave setting and this type of style rings. I ordered few other rings along with this one in hopes of keeping one or two. Well, this ring is one of two that I kept, even though the other rings were set with all gem stones, this one looked sexier on the finger. The black and purple color combination in this design is very sophisticated and unique. I've gotten complements and people have asked if they could see this ring up-close. Normally I would need a size 6.5, but because this ring is a little wider and has an undergallery, size 7 fits perfect. I love it and recommend it! 10-08-12
Love It :) What a beautiful ring this is. It is unlike any of Judith's other rings, but gorgeous nonetheless. There is a sizing problem though. I ordered a 7, my normal size for middle finger to play it safe as my ring finger is a 6. Size 7 is really more like 61/2, so it doesn't fit either one. I will have to get it sized, but it's worth it. Buying it on clearance made the ring even prettier! I love it with the black ceramic watch and with the amy hearts clip-on. 09-11-12
LOVE IT! Beautiful saturation in the stones, substantial setting, couture design. Wonderful ring!!! 07-09-12
