Amethyst Rings, Amethyst Gem Stone Jewelry 


Amethyst rings and other amethyst gem stone jewelry have been wore since a few centuries. A violet-purple gem stone amethyst is mined in many parts of the world. This gem is a variety of quartz and is also the birth stone for the month of, February. Your amethyst gem stone ring can be worn as a birthstone jewel but, you really need not be born in the month of February to own or wear a ring with this gem. Available in three broad purple-violet shades, it is the medium purple amethyst gem that is most often used to produce amethyst rings and other jewels. The very pale purple amethyst is not very popular with jewelry lovers today. However in the Victorian era it was this pale gem that was frequently used in jewelry, it was sometimes referred to as the 'Rose De France'.

The Greek word 'amethustos' which translates as 'not drunk' is believed to be the origin of the name amethyst. Interestingly it was believed in ancient times that, drinking from a goblet carved from amethyst ensured that the drinker never got intoxicated. Amethyst carved goblets were therefore very popular in those days. If you are choosing an amethyst ring, select the medium purple gem unless you want something very pale or over saturated. In this section we discuss various issues related to amethyst gem stone jewelry. You will also learn that, this gem is popular among ladies and men.


As a gem stone amethyst is suitable for all types of jewelry. The hardness of this stone is 7, which means that it is tough enough to handle frequent wear. Quartz is not affected by water, detergent soaps or ultrasonic cleaners. Amethyst gem stone jewelry is therefore easy to wear and easy to maintain.

We just mentioned above that, this gem can be found in a very pale purple shade, a medium purple color and a very saturated dark purple color. Before you choose a very pale or very dark shade of purple for your amethyst jewel, make sure that you understand how these would appear. A very deep purple amethyst could appear almost black but, it is the choice for many men's amethyst rings. On the other hand pale purple might hardly show any color, very few men consider this shade for their rings.

If you have observed men's amethyst rings you will notice that, mens silver amethyst rings are more popular as compared to gold amethyst rings for men. There is more than one reason for this trend. Many men do not like their rings to be bright and flashy. Silver with it's sobre and yet confident appearance has always enjoyed a high level of popularity with men.  Another reason for the popularity of silver mens rings is the, modest price of silver as compared to gold. Remember that men's rings are always quite large and require substantial metal weight to be durable and sturdy. When you choose a mens amethyst ring, keep in mind that a weight of 15 to 20 grams is the minimum that you should accept.

A few years ago, the demand for three gem stone rings or other jewels took an upward swing. While some of these multi gem rings included different gem types in the same ring, others retained the same gem for all three gem stones.

We have talked about amethyst rings, and will soon show you some amethyst bracelets too but, what we are about to discuss here is something unique. Custom cuff links with genuine gems are not common, most cufflink providers today make cheap cuff links with synthetic pieces of material that resembles gems. Kaisilver custom cufflinks can be produced with our designs or yours. The important thing is that we use genuine gems and not imitation glass or resin.

We now come back to our discussion on amethyst rings. We mentioned that the design of an amethyst jewel should ensure firm mounting of the gem stone. The type of gem stone mounting should also protect the gem stone from physical impact. When you have a design that uses a gem stone with sharp pointed corners, the corners need to be protected from breaking or chipping too. Good examples of this are amethyst gold or 925 silver rings with square gems, or gems that are rectangular in shape. However there are occassions when the buyer wants an amethyst ring with a square gem but, exposed corners. While it is true that the jeweler does not have a choice in such a case, it is still the duty of the jeweler to explain durability related issues to the buyer in such a case. The point is that, the buyer needs to understand that an amethyst ring with such a design would not provide adequate protection to the corner points of the gem stones.

Observe how the corners of the gemstone in the RG171 amethyst yellow or white gold ring, are left exposed. It would have been better to use right angle 'L' prongs on the corners but, the buyer wanted an open look. The risks of the amethyst getting damaged on the pointed corners were explained to the buyer but, the buyer decided to go ahead with this design ... more 

After talking about the rather open gem type of mounting used for the RG171 ring, we would like to give you an example of 'L' shaped right angled prongs which is recommended for square or rectangular amethyst gems. The RG184 is a durable and sturdy square amethyst gem stone ring, you could choose the gem stone and metal of your choice like always.

The RG184 amethyst ring is suitable for men and ladies. The square amethyst gem stone is firmly mounted with right angled prongs. Besides mounting the amethyst firmly, these prongs also protect the corners of the gemstone from chipping or breaking, additional metal weight might be recommended for large ring sizes ... more.

Rings like the RG184 gold or silver amethyst gem stone ring can be produced with differing metal weights. While the metal weight will not have much impact on the price tag of 925 silver amethyst rings, the effect can be more pronounced when it comes to gold rings. If you need a large ring size, our support team might recommend an increase in metal weight. The idea is to maintain the same level of durability across all ring sizes. Similarly if you prefer to narrow down the band width of your amethyst ring, a reduction in gem size would do the job. The need for a solid band with no metal scooped out from the inside would also suggest an increase in metal weight. Few jewelers care to get into these details but at Kaisilver we believe that, informing and educating the buyers is in the longterm interest of us and the buyer too. It is better to lose an order rather than push a buyer to make an impulse purchase.

Most fashion experts agree that amethysts look great on people of all age groups. There is much truth in this statement, one reason is probably that for a February birth stone jewel, options are limited to amethyst gemstone jewelry. If you buy an amethyst gem stone ring or other jewel for a child, sterling silver is a better choice as compared to gold. Silver jewelry is moderately priced, gold with it's high commercial value is also a target for robbers and even petty criminals.

Sturdy gem mountings, strong link connections and even a steady and firm clasp all need good metal weight.
