I got a message from Jim. He’s been on a quest for the best amethyst on the planet. The purple stone has been coveted for centuries and thanks to its seductive violet sparkle, it hasn’t lost any of its charm. After months on the trail, he finally had an update...
“Greetings from the other side of the world. Once again, I’ve left a trail of dirty boot prints and broken hearts through South America, Africa and Asia in search of the best amethyst on Earth.
Brazil was blast, but remind me to skip Russia next time. Hiking the Urals in search of druzy amethyst is fine… if you’re part Yeti. Things got better in India. Lots of dealers with some truly stunning gems. I can understand why the Mughal empire was so crazy about the stuff. By the time I got to southern Africa I was bushed (pun intended), so I checked into a lovely resort near Victoria Falls. My pit stop in paradise didn’t last long. After my man in Lusaka called, I spent a punishing 7-hour drive followed by two days on my hands and knees deep into the side of a mountain. But I found so much good stuff, they took to calling me “The Amethyst Whisperer.” Of course, I’d prefer “The Mighty Amethyst Conqueror,” but I didn’t complain.
I sent you a package. Think of it as a “greatest hits” compilation from my travels. I’ll sure you’ll find a way to turn these rough beauties into something utterly stunning. You have a knack for that. In the meantime, I’m going to sleep for about a week. See you when I see you.”
We transformed that rough into a stunning 150-carat necklace of grand proportions. The Atlas Necklace dazzles with faceted amethyst beads and gold-finished spacers. Hand-picked from the finest amethyst on Earth. Ready for your next luxury adventure!
