A is for Amethyst

by Lillian Csernica on April 1, 2017


Welcome to Day One of the Great A to Z Blog Challenge!

Purple is my favorite color, so amethyst has always been one of my favorite semiprecious stones. Amethyst appears quite frequently in both Art Nouveau and Art Deco designs.


14k gold, amethyst, enamel, and pearl.

  4. I was a month earlier than expected; otherwise amethyst would have been my birthstone. It’s one of my favorite gems.
