Amethyst Dangles

Bold in color these dangle earrings are highlighted by 8x6mm rich and dark purple amethyst framed in sterling silver.

This classic earring design features two sparkling faceted oval purple amethysts set in silver. 

Amethyst has been a prized gem for centuries. It is the symbol for Pisces and the month of February, and the gem for the 6th year of marriage. The stone is included in royal collections all over the world, from ancient Egypt to the British crown jewels. Saint Valentine was thought to wear a ring set with an antique Amethyst carved with an image of Cupid. 

The name amethyst derives from the ancient Greek word amethustos, meaning sober. It was said that an amethyst could prevent the bearer from becoming excessively drunk and also instills a sober and serious mind. It was believed that if a person drank from a cup or goblet made entirely of amethyst, he or she would not get drunk at all. In Greek mythology, amethyst was rock crystal dyed purple by the tears of Dionysus, the god of wine and revelry.
