For many thousands of years, the most striking representative of the quartz family, amethyst has been a jewel coveted by kings, princes and religious leaders. Designers celebrate amethyst as the ideal choice for jewelry because of its regal color, variety of sizes and shapes, affordability and wide tonal range from light to dark purple. It is a color that you will also treasure in your own jewels.
