Things to know about amethyst

  • Pick a culture, and amethyst has probably played a role in its ceremonies or religion. In Ancient Greece, amethyst was used as a talisman, and was believed to bring out the best qualities in mankind — as well as ward off inebriation! Some early Christians associated amethyst with Christ. And in Tibet, special rosaries have been made out of amethyst to promote clarity of mind.
  • Brazil and Uruguay are home to deep amethyst deposits, and each country is known for its own special hue. In Brazil, amethyst tends to be a light purple color, and stones mined from Uruguay have a deeper purple hue.
  • Until the 1800’s, amethyst was considered one of the most sought-after gemstones, more precious than rubies or emeralds. However, after large amethyst deposits were found in Brazil, prices went down, making amethyst jewelry’s sparkling purple radiance available to more people.
  • Know a queen or king in your life? Use the amethyst gemstone to represent their royal status. Have a February birthday in your life? This accessible gemstone is the perfect gift, as it is the February birthstone.

What makes an amethyst ring special?

Purple: royal, distinctive, bold, and true. Amethyst symbolizes all of these, and it’s one of the few stones that’s accessible in larger carat sizes for relatively affordable prices, making it an approachable choice with lots of styles and staying power.

Amethyst is one of the most treasured quartz gemstones and was once considered as valuable as the ruby. Amethyst is known to keep a person sober and guard one from the heady influence of Bacchus. So, the name was derived from the Greek word, amethystos i.e. ‘not drunk’. Amethyst is quite hard and isn’t prone to chips and damage. It is available in various hues from the reddish-purple and, lavender to a cooler bluish-purple color. Amethyst’s hue varies due to iron and other trace elements present in the stone.

Amethyst rings symbolize virtue, modesty, and honesty. Renowned for its therapeutic properties, amethyst jewelry has been a favorite among the royals for centuries since it was discovered in 2000 BC. Queen Catherine the Great of Russia loved amethysts and legends believe Saint Valentine had an amethyst ring with a cupid on it. This surprisingly reasonable jewel that gives you access to carat sizes that didn’t fit your budget before. Available in a variety of sizes, the largest amethyst geode is called the Empress of Uruguay and weighs 2.5 tons!

Amethyst works well with understated or more statement-making tastes. Think delicate earrings, small elegant pendants, or an amethyst ring if you prefer something simple. However, if you want to make a statement with your jewelry, then amethyst gemstones are perfect for a large, sparkling ring or a fabulous necklace.


Versatile: Amethysts are versatile and can be worn as rings, earrings, pendants and more. They can be used as center stones, where diamonds or other complementary stones are added as accents. These gemstones work well with subtle, uncluttered designs or traditional, antique settings as well.

Affordable: These quartz gemstones are not as expensive as other precious and semi-precious stones. If you want to make a splash with your jewelry without worrying about going beyond your budget, amethysts are one of the first gems to turn to.

Transforms negative energy to positive:  The amethyst is said to sober up vices, relieve anxiety, do away with negative energy and add positive vibes to your life. Fostering a harmonious union with your loved ones while making a major style statement? Yes, please.


More commonplace: The same material that creates geodes and crystals serves as the gemstone that’s placed on your ring. If you’re looking to showcase the cost of your jewelry and its rare qualities, an amethyst engagement ring may not be the way to go. But we at Vinca are fans of choosing the stone that you love, and if you love amethyst’s beautiful purple color, we’re happy to help you find a way to make it your own.

Doesn’t gel with every outfit: Let’s face it, purple isn’t a part of most people’s everyday wardrobe. Still, when set in the right way, amethyst can be surprisingly versatile, especially if a smaller center stone or amethyst accent stones are used.

Not in demand: Not necessarily a con, but a consideration: Amethyst engagement rings are not the most popular style, but it doesn’t mean it’s not the ring for you. We’ve helped many couples work amethyst into their wedding sets, and it can be a personal statement about your love or your beloved. If amethyst speaks to your heart, don’t be afraid to explore how an amethyst ring might work for you.
