Nearly every girl dreams of being a princess at one time another, and the dream of finding one’s prince is often one that’s carried into adulthood. The regal beauty of Amethyst engagement rings is a perfect way to celebrate that this dream has finally come true.
Since they’re semi-precious gemstones, amethysts are quite affordable, though their violet glimmer doesn’t give away their wallet-friendly prices. Amethyst engagement rings offer the perfect combination of affordability and fantasy for today’s brides-to-be.
Amethyst rings aren’t just the stuff of fairy tales, however. Real-life royalty such as the Russian empress Catherine the Great have loved these violet gems as well, demonstrating that their beauty is truly fit for the ruling class. The Three Stone Amethyst Ring in 14K White Gold puts a regal twist on the classic three-stone ring. A glimmering 0.40 carat princess-cut amethyst serves as the centerpiece of this simply elegant style, giving it a look that’s just as fit for any fairy tale heroine as it is for modern-day brides-to-be. Two round amethysts, totaling 0.30 carat in weight, provide a simply classy finishing touch.
For thousands of years, the timeless beauty of the amethyst has been sought after, from ancient Egypt to the Roman Empire. The ability of this gemstone to retain its allure across centuries and cultures makes it a gorgeous choice for designs inspired by the past such as the Vintage Rose Amethyst Ring in 14K White Gold. This Victorian design accents a 10mm x 8mm amethyst with intricate carved flowers and openwork. Or, for brides-to-be who’d rather a taste of the 1920s, consider an Art Deco style such as the Art Deco Diamond and Amethyst Ring in 14K White Gold. A 7mm cushion-cut diamond is flanked by a total of eight round diamonds, all set in a band engraved with a repeating motif that adds sophistication and trend-defying appeal.
If you’re looking for a ring that combines the regal beauty of amethyst with the classic engagement ring stone, be sure to take a look at Apples of Gold’s selection of amethyst and diamond rings. The colorless sparkle of diamonds makes the rich color of amethyst seem even more stunning. For instance, the Three Stone Amethyst and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold is simple, but that doesn’t make it any less regal. A 1.20 carat oval-shaped amethyst is bordered by two round diamonds totaling a quarter carat in weight, set on a smooth, flat band of gleaming 14K white gold.
For a look that’s suited not only for a princess but also for a queen, check out the Cushion Cut Amethyst and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold. In this show-stopping ring, a 2.50 carat cushion-cut amethyst is accented by nearly three dozen diamonds that both frame the center stone and embrace the wearer’s finger.
As the February birthstone, the amethyst is a thoughtful way to honor a February birthday as well as pop the question. Don’t let its birthstone status hold you back if you’re drawn by its regal good looks, however. No matter where her birthday falls on the calendar, an amethyst engagement ring can show her that she’ll always rule your heart.
