She was Amethyst, a maiden devoted to virtue. He was Dionysus, the notorious Greek god of intoxication and revelry. He loved her, but she wanted to wait for someone more suitable. He was a god, used to getting what he wanted. The chase was on. But once Olympian goddess Artemis saw that Amethyst was serious about keeping her heart pure, she transformed her into a statue of perfect white stone. Dionysus stopped partying for a moment and wept. He spilled his wine and infused the statue with the rich violet color we now know as amethyst.
It’s not what you would call a happy ending. Luckily something good came from their ill-fated romance... inspiration for these earrings. Polished amethyst gemstones form perfect clusters evoking grapes on a vine. Raise a glass to romance and toast to your love with the Amethyst Earrings.
