Bangles look best when worn in groups, and this trio shows you why. One of the bangles is luminous thanks to a pink, button-shaped cultured freshwater pearl; one offers an amethyst cabochon with white banding; and the third has a faceted, checkerboard-cut amethyst gemstone. Bezel-set gemstones and oxidized rondels add the final touch. From Michael Dawkins.

About Michael Dawkins
Michael Dawkins

Michael Dawkins has developed one of the most recognizable and respected brands in designer jewelry. As a student, he was drawn to architecture and industrial design. The combination of these interests and his pursuit of an aesthetic sensibility shape his design process. Dawkins explains: "I have discovered the basic principles of form and rhythm in the study of natural objects. I strive to translate these principles into jewelry designs that are functional, wearable, and timeless."

He's always used classic materials: silver, gold, diamonds, semi-precious stones, and unusual natural materials found in his travels. Early on in his career, Dawkins discovered the ancient technique of granulation, in which metal is heated and formed into tiny spheres that are affixed in various patterns. Incorporating this design element along with clean, crisp lines has become his signature. His collections combine a modern sensibility with an infinite respect for the hues, textures, and compositions abundant in nature.

All of these influences come together to create some of the most sought-after collections in contemporary designer jewelry. His frequent personal contact with clients provides invaluable feedback, making his jewelry striking and extremely wearable.

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.

Michael Dawkins Sterling Set of 3 Purple Multi-Gemstone Slip On Bangles 3.6 5 17 17
Love this bangle set This is my first Dawkins bangle set and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I chose this set because it has the striped amy stone that matches some Dawkins earrings I purchased awhile back. The stones are beautiful and the fit is just right for me. I generally purchase a large or 8" but this choice was not available. I took a chance on the "average" size and it fit beautifully. It isn't difficult to get over my hand and it has enough dangle to fit like a bangle should. Glad I took the plunge on this one. 07-09-13
So Disappointed! I absolutely love MD and have pieces I love and wear all the time. I received these in the yellow and purple and I ordered the large and they fit fine. I also only received two yellow and the third bangle was not yellow and didn't match. The first time I wore them they broke in half. I couldn't believe it for this price. I also received them in a box by another designer. When I wore them I also could never see the stones which were beautiful. They kept turning around to the other plain side which was unfortunate. The stones were beautiful, the quality was totally not Michael Dawkins. I am also sending the other set back because I don't want them breaking in half. 02-25-12
Beautiful but ... I was so hoping these bangles would work for me , as I tried the snakeskin set in small and couldn't get them over my hand. These fit in small over my hand but were way too large on my wrist. The set is beautiful, nice weight , lovely design and very nice stones.Wish there was a way to get them over the hand and not have them be too large or turn ( as many people found ). If they fit you these are a truely lovely set , sadly I returned mine. Will hope Michael has some new wonderful things in April. 02-25-12
Beautiful stones but... The citrine stones were beautiful but I only received 2 bracelets. The ones I received were way too large (I ordered size large) and bracelets flipped over so stones were on the bottom. Needless to say, I returned them. A shame because I really like Dawkins jewelry. 02-23-12
Gemstones Repeatedly Facing Down These are attractive enough bracelets, but in my opinion overpriced. However, the bigger problem for me is that they turn over on my wrist so the gemstones are facing down even when I repeatedly correct it. I look down and they've turned over again. I would like to see QVC include the diameter on all their continuous non-opening bangles. It would make things so much easier for us and QVC (fewer returns). I ordered the average for my 6" wrist. Some have said the bangles don't turn over when they're the right size for the wrist, but not knowing the diameter of the small and having experienced the MD blue topaz small bangle just barely fitting over my left hand, I don't want to take the chance since I want to wear them on my right hand. 02-20-12
Too bad---so sad!! The bangles are a nice weight, with color saturated stones (yellow, honey, burnt orange range), although seeing the bracelets in person made me question whether they were worth the price. That said, none of it would matter, because even though I have a small wrist, I could not get the bracelets on over my hand. I tried every which way, but like Cinderella's ugly stepsister, I had to give up! I've never had this happen before, even with a round bangle. I would caution those who may have a small wrist, but a larger hand, to beware, because these will not fit you. I'm afraid the 'average' size would be ill-fitting as well, because the bracelets would then not fit the wrist properly. 02-14-12
Beautiful Bangles I'm in love with my new amy bangles. They scream "Dawkins" in every way. I got the Small version, and they fit my 6-1/4" wrist perfectly. I find they do not spin, but I think it's because they actually fit so well. There is just enough room for me to get them over my hand. I will definitely be getting another set of these when they go on EZ pay again. The price (Ouch!) is the only negative about these. The large round amethyst in one of the bangles is simply gorgeous - deep and grapey - just like you want it to be. I'm really in love with these ladies!!! 02-13-12
My first MD return I love every piece of Michael Dawkins jewelry except for this set. First of all these are so over priced and there was nothing substantial to them. I got the small and they were still way too big which has not happened with his other size small bracelets. Very disappointing. 02-13-12
GREAT BANGLES Very nice set. Pretty and stylish. Looks great with Michael Dawkins Amethyst hoop earrings # J261931 . 02-13-12
On the fence Not sure yet...first, received bracelets in an Erica Courtney box--not sure what's up with that? Did find that the bracelets do not hold their shape...they do bend easily - at that was just around the house. We'll see how they hold up in a work environment. At $100 per bracelet, not sure if they're a good value. Still have 3 weeks to decide...they may go back. 02-13-12
Beautiful but... Lovely silver and the stones are gorgeous, I got the purple set, the bangles are a bitt large but the big issue for me is it needs to have the stones all around because they all hang down and you don't see them. I like them well enough to keep but they really should be redesigned. Michael should have someone wear the jewelry before it goes into production. I would buy multiples if he changes the design. 02-12-12
Just Beautiful Just got these bangles in the yellow citrine color. They fit perfect. I got the average and they are easy to get on and off. The bangles are oval shape so the stones stay on top and does not flip around. The stones are faceted and shines beautifully. Maybe Michael will make them again so I can stack another three. Keep the new jewels coming. 02-11-12
