antique amethyst jewellery

Amethysts have been held in high regard throughout history due to their beauty and the powers they were believed to bestow on their wearer. In the Greek and Roman eras, amethyst rings, set in bronze, were worn in the belief that they would ward off evil. During the same period, cups were carved from amethysts in the hope that the purple stone would banish sorrow and evil from all who drank from them.

This gemstone has long had connotations with religion and royalty, and there are multiple biblical references of the powerful stone. The amethyst was one of the twelve stones that adorned the breastplate of the high priest Aaron (Exodus 39), for example, and was later favoured by members of the Catholic church as it was believed to represent piety and celibacy.

Amethyst jewellery is perhaps most famous for its connotations with royalty and this precious gemstone even decorates the crown jewels.

In recent history, the amethyst enjoyed a popular revival in vintage and retro jewellery, after taking a back seat in the jewellery world during the 1920s and 1930s. During the post-war period, emerald cut and pear cut amethysts became a popular jewellery feature. Amethysts were most often set in angular styles, surrounded by other bright and bold gemstones.

There are many benefits and properties that people believe amethysts to possess. From treating insomnia to balancing your mindset and encouraging calm contemplation, these purple stones really are believed to do it all. Amethysts are sometimes referred to as the gemstone of peace, so if you''''re looking for a gemstone that will look fabulous while also bringing you a sense of calm, the amethyst would be an excellent choice.

Whether you are looking for a new addition to your jewellery box or a gift for a February birthstone gift discover the full range of amethyst necklaces, bracelets, rings, and brooches at AC Silver.

One thing that’s unique to amethysts is that there are susceptible to losing some of the saturation in their colouring when they are exposed to bright light for too long.

Amethysts are quite a hard stone, less likely to scratch than many other gemstones, however there is still a risk. When you’re wearing your amethyst jewellery, avoid wearing clothing pieces that are likely to cause scratching.

Scratches are also preventable during the storage of your jewellery. If you want to ensure your jewellery is as safe as it can be, store separate pieces in soft cloth bags within your jewellery box. This not only keeps amethyst jewellery from being scratched by hard pieces like diamond jewellery, but it also prevents the amethyst jewellery from damaging softer gemstones like those found in opal and pearl jewellery.
