It’s that time of year when the holidays are over, but there’s still no end in sight to winter—just the time when you could really use a reminder that spring will eventually come. It’s during this season that spring-like colors take on a special allure, and green amethyst jewelry is a wonderful way to add refreshing bursts of a hue that sparkles with life.
Purple amethyst may get most of the attention, but its green sibling has plenty to offer. Its light, slightly minty green may initially hide the fact that it’s a variety of a stone often associated with royalty, but its poised personality gives it away. Green amethyst’s cool color is both soothing and lively, making it an ideal gem for the time of year when we look for rest and energy after the busyness of the holidays.
If you’re looking for a classic style with a twist, look no further than timeless solitaires and three-stone styles set with green amethyst. For instance, Apples of Gold’s Green Amethyst Gemstone Solitaire Ring in 14K White Gold exhibits a time-honored design that will never fall out of fashion, but with a unique green sparkle that sets it apart.
The Vintage Leaf Green Amethyst Ring in 14K White Gold offers a reminder that spring that will eventually come, not only through its refreshing color but also through the delicate leaf motif that’s expertly engraved into the band. This elegant design harkens to times past and brings to mind a time when life didn’t move at such a breakneck pace. The 8mm round green amethyst featured in this ring adds a lush splash of color, while a heart hidden in the setting underneath this stone gives this ring a secret touch of romance. It’s perfect for sending a message about the love that you share.
If a classic style with a fresh color palate sounds appealing, don’t miss the Sea-Foam Green Amethyst and Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold. This ring would be just as at home on the finger of a princess as it would be on your own. A sizeable 2.80 carat green amethyst, a full centimeter high, is accented by a ring of small, sparkling diamonds and held by a diamond-encrusted band. Although this ring is eye-catching, its gentle color assures that it never needs to shout to garner attention.
If you’d like to add a bit of spring-like color to more than just your finger, try adding a pair of green amethyst earrings such as the Green Amethyst and Diamonds Heart Shape Earrings in 10K White Gold. This pair surrounds 4mm green amethyst hearts with diamonds and drops them just below your earlobes for a lighthearted touch of cool glimmer. These earrings would make a lovely gift for someone who refreshes your heart.
Any of these green amethyst rings or earrings will refresh your look in the coldest days of winter with a reminder that spring will eventually come. Their ability to symbolize life and vitality no matter what the weather makes them winning picks for January and well into the spring.
