Gemstone of love and lovers, it is no accident that Amethyst is the birthstone of February. Legend states that this auspicious jewel was the favorite gem of St. Valentine who was famed for wearing an Amethyst ring engraved with Cupid.

Once considered a 'Cardinal' gem, alongside diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald, Amethyst's saturated purple nuances were for thousands of years reserved exclusively for use by the church and nobility. Today, Amethyst's majestic colors are available to all at a fraction of a king's ransom.
