Often jewelry is weighted with a meaning or something sentimental. 

Who doesn't like purple? Purple tends to occur rarely in nature, so it is viewed as rare and intriguing. It has something mysterious and spiritual. The colour purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power and ambition.

Amethyst complements both warm and cool colours so it looks fabulous set in both yellow and white metals. This unique ability means it enhances almost every color in your wardrobe. Perfect!
