Often regarded as the most mythical gem of all, amethyst appears in various shades of purple, from pale lilac to deep mauve. We can observe amethyst’s influence as far back as ancient Greek mythology when Dionysus cried drunken tears of remorse, which landed on crystalline quartz, creating the purple gem amethyst. Amethyst also symbolizes piety, humility, sincerity and spiritual wisdom, earning it the name Bishop's Stone. Artisans from around the globe favor the regal February birthstone when they craft various styles including pendants, chokers, collars and amethyst jewelry sets. Worn alone or in the company of other colorful gems, such as Thai artisan Anusara’s beaded amethyst pearl necklace, ‘Mystic Passion,’ any amethyst necklace from this special collection is destined to become a timeless and unique gift.
