Because all of that ancient artistry, all of that skill is reflected in this piece. The chain? A lush byzantine beauty.
This necklace has it all ... history, drama, the rich purple amethysts symbolic of royalty ... centuries of perfecting a craft ... you could almost call it a history of the world.

If you are fortunate enough to be born in February, amethyst is your birthstone. This wonderful member of the quartz family often forms large, six-sided crystals. It's usually quite clear and can be cut into almost every shape, which makes it ideal for jewelry. Because amethyst is a 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness, it's very wearable. Versatile amethyst offers a wide variety of shades, from reddish to violet-purple. If you prefer soft, subdued colors, you will truly enjoy the pastel lavenders of amethyst. Are you drawn to deeper, richer colors? Then you should consider some of the intense purple amethyst from Africa or South America.
