The word Amethyst is derived from the ancient Greek word, amethystos, which means “not drunk”. It took on this name because its wine-like color led the Greeks to believe Amethyst would prevent intoxication. St. Valentine was said to wear an Amethyst ring with a cupid carved into it. Amethyst has been sought after by religious leaders and royalty since ancient times. Some pieces of Amethyst jewelry have been dated back as far as 2000BC.
We have a wide variety of beautiful Amethyst Jewelry in our online Amethyst Jewelry Gallery.
