Amanda necklace is full of secrets and violet amethyst with topaz make this necklace look even more fascinating.
Amethyst literally means “not intoxicated”, translates from the Greek word améthystos. The name Amethyst is derived from the Greek word ametusthos, meaning “not intoxicated”, and comes from an ancient legend. The wine god Bacchus, angry over an insult and determined to avenge himself, decreed the first person he should meet would be devoured by his tigers. The unfortunate mortal happened to be a beautiful maiden named Amethyst on her way to worship at the shrine of Diana. As the ferocious beasts sprang, she sought the protection of the goddess and was saved by being turned into a clear, white crystal. Bacchus, regretting his cruelty, poured the juice of his grapes over the stone as an offering; giving the gem its lovely purple hue.
White topaz bring to Amanda necklace a light touch and sterling silver finishes the framing.
