History: A symbol of sincerity and stability, the unique purple shades of Amethyst have been declared the "Rose de France" and were used by the ancient Romans to enhance sobriety and by the Egyptians to speak to the Gods. Diamonds have always been the enduring symbol of love but were also worn by kings as a symbol of courage, strength and invincibility. Gold is well known as a universal symbol of wealth, but it also symbolizes power, strength and perfection. The ancients used Gold to symbolize balance in all things.
