African amethyst sets a new standard of excellence for this storied gem
At Stauer, amethyst has long been one of our favorite gems. In fact it’s one of the stones we first started with and to this day we can’t resist the regal purple tones. But not all amethyst is created equal. Although Africa has been producing amethyst for more than a decade, the news was essentially a trade secret until only a few years ago. With their deep, velvety purple hues, amethyst from Africa now represents the ideal shade. Even specialists in South American amethyst (a primary source for the gem) concede that Africa currently sets the standard of excellence for this purple beauty. This necklace features African amethyst showstoppers accented with pink sapphire and 14K rose gold – it’s African amethyst’s turn to shine.
