Amethyst Amethyst means “not drunk” in ancient Greek and has long been associated with Bacchus, the God of Wine, it is thought due to its wine-like color. Amethyst is a variety of quartz, ranging in color from lilac to dark purple. Amethyst was at one point equal in value to ruby, emerald, and sapphire and features in royal jewelry throughout time. Amethyst is the February birthstone.

Rose Cut The rose cut originated in the 1500's and were cut by hand and meant to be beautiful in the candlelight conditions of the time. The name 'rose" for this cut comes from its facets, which are said to resemble petals in a rose bud. The rose cut features a flat base and domed top featuring 3 to 24 facets. As this cut has a flat base, it gives a softer, gentler light than a fully faceted brilliant cut. It also gives a larger face-up appearance than a brilliant cut of similar carat weight, as it carries all of its weight above the flat base.

Cartier “The jeweller of kings and the king of jewelers," Cartier was founded in 1847 in Paris by Louis-François Cartier , and remained a family business until 1964. Cartier has produced jewelry for royal families worldwide, as well as clients including Princess Grace, Elizabeth Taylor, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Jean Cocteau.
