Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to celebrate over 400 years of wedded bliss of two gorgeous gemstones: Regal purple amethyst and sunny golden citrine. United, they become one gorgeous rare gemstone– ametrine.
This beautiful synthesis of two gemstones is incredibly rare. So rare, that ametrine can only be found in the Anahi mine in southeastern Bolivia. Legend has it that a Spanish conquistador discovered the mine’s location in the 1600s and introduced the gem to Europeans when he presented several specimens to his queen. The mine had been given to him as a dowry when he married a native princess named Anahi. After that, the mine was lost for more than three centuries. Rediscovered in the 1960s, the mine’s ametrine began appearing on the market again during the 1970s. Today the mine, named Anahi for the legendary princess, is the sole source for this legendary gemstone. We are happy to say we have access to this rare beauty and have brought it to you for a rare price.
These earrings celebrate the rare beauty of ametrine in gorgeous emerald-cut gems set in warm rose gold-finished sterling silver. Ametrine’s colors blend, combine, and contrast uniquely in each gem, so you are guaranteed a gem unlike any other in the world. Absolutely perfect for celebrating your one-of-a-kind love. And, blissfully priced, making it easy to say “I do.”
