Welcome a new style era for this mysterious, ethereal gem. (Hippy types can look away now...)

Amethyst is the zen master of high-end jewellery. Not just beautiful, this distinctive purple stone is also renowned for its spiritual qualities. Purple is a colour beloved by high jewellery brands, which favour amethyst or purple sapphires woven in amongst other multi-coloured stones. See Verdura's Byzantine Riviere necklace, pictured, which perfectly balances green gems, pink kunzites and amethyst to accentuate the beauty of all three stones. Dior uses amethyst as a centre-stone in one of its exquisitely crafted rings from the Pre Catelan collection. While de Grisogono offers exquisite amethyst earrings as part of its iconic Melody of Colours collection. Rock on.
