Gemstones

As the purest, brightest and most enduring gemstone, a diamond is the ultimate symbol of eternal love. Throughout history, no other stone has created more passion, fueled more romances and ignited more fires than the diamond; its fiery complexity and mystique are as indefinable as love itself.

A diamond is the hardest transparent natural substance known, and the purest of all gemstones as it is uniquely composed of a single element, carbon. With an incredible power to transmit and reflect light when properly cut, a diamond possesses an incomparable beauty and radiance.

Charged with symbolic meaning, all gemstones possess a definitive magic and mystique.

Often used as birthstones, each month is associated with different types of gemstones, such as iridescent opals, deep purple amethysts, fiery red rubies, and sultry sapphires to commemorate the celebration of life.

Amethyst

Amethyst is a variety of quartz that ranges in color from transparent light to dark purple. It has long been treasured for its rich, royal hues.

Amethyst can be traced back to the Minoan period in Greece (about 2500 BC), where it was used as polished cabochons (dome-shaped stones) set in gold. It can be found in works from many artistic eras since then.

The two main sources of amethyst today are Brazil and Zambia, but it is also found in Uruguay, Russia, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Zimbabwe and Arizona

Did you know?

The word "amethustos" means, "not drunk." The ancient Greeks believed that whoever wore this stone would be protected against the intoxicating effect of wine. Whether or not the Greeks held the key to sobriety is open to question. Roman women claimed the gem could keep their husbands faithful.
