Amethysts were one of the most coveted gemstones amongst royalty. It has been used to adorn fine jewellery for centuries. From pendants and talismans to one-of-a-kind brooches, this stone would make an amazing centrepiece for your next piece of custom made jewellery.

Rings – Amethysts are a great choice as an alternative to traditional gem choices. With the correct cut, it is sure to sparkle and show off its amazing brilliance. Suitable cuts for rings would be the traditional round and oval cuts. The cushion or marquise cut would also be an exceptional choice.

Necklaces – Encrusting a necklace with amethyst gemstones would have a stunning effect. The stones would need to smaller so the round and marquise cut would be a great choice to showcase the stone’s sparkle.

Pendants – Making an amethyst the focal point of a pendant will give it an elegant, almost antique look. Since the stone will be the centrepiece, it needs to have dazzling colour and sparkle. Good choices of cuts would, therefore, be the pear, marquise and for something a bit unconventional, the princess cut.

Earrings – Amethysts would work exceptionally well in a pair of earrings. Its alluring colour would look majestic and make an amazing gift for your significant other. The pear, marquise, briolette and rounds cuts are phenomenal choices to highlight the stone’s colour.

Bracelets – Amethysts are said to have various healing properties and bestow abundant luck. They alleviate anxiety and help promote balance and longevity.

Brooches – Although somewhat antiquated, a brooch would still make a stunning piece of fine jewellery. They can be intricately designed or tastefully simple. Either way, a brooch is a great way to showcase your amethyst gemstone. Suitable cuts for a brooch are the round, oval and marquise cuts. For a more antique look, the emerald and cushion cut would be an amazing option.

While not crucially important, the type of metal will have an impact on how your gemstone is displayed. The metal you choose is entirely based on preference but each metal will highlight your amethyst differently. Silver coloured metals like white gold, platinum and palladium will showcase the stone’s colour and brilliance more dramatically.
