Amethyst is the purple variety of the mineral quartz. For centuries it has been prized for the vivid purple tones it comes in. Amethysts are fit for a queen, yet affordable enough for everyday wear. That is why you will find amethysts prominently displayed in everything from the crown jewels, to the affordable sweetheart ring on a young lady’s hand.
In addition to being the birthstone for the month of February, amethysts are also the traditional gemstone for the 6th and 17th wedding anniversaries. But regardless of the month a person is born in, or the number of years a person has been married, a gift of amethyst jewelry will always be well received.
