Green probably isn’t the first color that comes to mind when you think of amethyst jewelry, but it shouldn’t be the last, either. Most of us are familiar with the regal purple variety of this gemstone, but violet isn’t the only kind of amethyst.
When exposed to heat, this semi-precious stone can change color, resulting in gems with unusually striking hues. With a cool minty color reminiscent of a frost-covered leaf with just a touch of earthy sage, green amethyst has a truly unique look, engaging the imaginations of all those who wear it and the curiosity of all those who see it. It’s hard not to admire this striking stone, and Apples of Gold provides a number of ring styles that allow you to sport its unusual beauty, whether you’re looking for the perfect piece to add interest to everyday outfits or for a unique accent for a special occasion.
The sophisticated, subdued yet spring-like hue of green amethyst is a natural accent to styles from the past. The Vintage Leaf Green Amethyst Ring in 14K White Gold showcases an 8mm round green amethyst in a Victorian style inspired by nature. Engraved leaves adorn each side of the meticulously crafted white gold band, giving the impression that the gemstone this ring holds is the blossom of a rare flower. This design also contains a surprise: a small heart crafted from white gold under the gem, visible only when this ring is viewed from the side.
Yellow gold settings give green amethyst an added sense of warmth, as evidenced by the Heart Shaped Green Amethyst and Diamond Ring. Five diamonds accent an eye-catching green amethyst, cut in the shape of a heart, while a graceful 14K yellow gold setting adds vibrancy. This ring is perfect for expressing a love that makes your heart come alive—or simply a love of beautiful and unique jewelry.
Although green amethyst has a soft calming color, it can still have a big impact, as seen in statement pieces like the 2.33 Carat Oval Shape Green Amethyst and Diamond Ring in 10K White Gold. This piece powerfully yet gently grabs attention with its large, alluring light green gemstone, wrapped in an intricate chain design. A total of a dozen diamonds accent the starring stone, set in a band that appears to be formed from meticulously crafted links of white gold. This ring is a true showstopper, both for its design and for the stone it showcases. Wearing it will make any day a special occasion.
Sterling silver styles allow you to experiment with your look without spending a lot of money, and they’re the perfect way to give unique gemstones a try. Apples of Gold gives you several sterling silver and green amethyst options, whether you’d like to go classic or completely contemporary. The Green Amethyst Solitaire Ring in Sterling Silver is a simply stunning classic option, showcasing the cool natural beauty of a single round green amethyst set on simple, elegant band.
If your personal taste veers more toward modern or artsy looks, don’t miss the Green Amethyst Openwork Sterling Silver Ring. A sizeable green amethyst—15mm square—is held by a one-of-a-kind wavy silver bezel. A matching openwork band is created from wavy lines of sterling silver, reminiscent of driftwood for a perfect complement to a stone the color of the sea’s foam.
Green amethyst may not be as well-known as its purple counterpart, but that’s certainly not due to a lack of good looks. Try one of Apples of Gold’s green amethyst rings to experience its unique beauty and unusual color for yourself.
