Amethyst Engagement Rings: One of the most popular colors of all the gemstones is purple, so clients also tend to love purple Amethyst rings. Amethysts are one of the more commonly encountered gemstones and can be found quite affordably in smaller sizes and lighter colors. But Amethyst can occur in every shade of purple, including rare deep violet Amethyst, as well as gems with blue or red flashes which are quite coveted today. 

Amethyst is a member of the Quartz mineral family, and is durable enough for everyday wear in an engagement ring so long as they are worn with care. With a protective setting and insurance, you have no issues. In fact, Amethysts are one of the ancient gemstones and have been worn since antiquity. As recently as the 1800s, the Amethyst was only permitted to be worn by Royalty or Bishops, and they were very rare. They were thought of as a luxury, and sold at prices exceeding any other gemstone! Changing society and new discoveries of Amethyst in South America made the gemstone more affordable and into reach of everyday citizens.
