Much more than a pretty facet
The briolette cut makes the royal amethyst even more esteemed
Since its discovery around 3000 B.C., the deep purples of the amethyst have symbolized royalty. Our Amethyst Briolette Ring takes the gem's royal status further by highlighting it in the preferred style of the royals: the “Briolette.”
In a Briolette the gemstone has its entire surface covered with long triangular or hexagonal facets. Typically a Briolette is in a pear or teardrop cut, but a skilled gem cutter can create a Briolette in any cut.
The term Briolette stems from the French word “brilliant.” A Briolette requires a lot of surface area making it quite expensive to cut, additionally, there are few cutters who create Briolettes because it takes years of experience and skill to become adept at the process. The process remains tedious and a cutter may only create a few in a day. Which is why this ring is an outstanding find.
Plus, you’re getting the additional sparkle of 78 white diamonds, along with amethyst rounds–– 70 to be exact.
