|Ancient Greek love secret Inspired by a mythological romance! She was Amethyst, a maiden devoted to virtue. He was Dionysus, the notorious Greek god of intoxication and revelry. He loved her, but she wanted to wait for someone more suitable. He was a god, used to getting what he wanted. The chase was on. But once Diana saw that Amethyst was serious about keeping her heart pure, the goddess transformed her into a statue of perfect stone. Dionysus stopped partying and wept. He spilled his wine and infused the statue with the rich violet color we now know as amethyst. Something good came from their ill-fated romance. Specifically, our spectacular Amethyst Maiden Necklace. Drape yourself in purple perfection. The Amethyst Maiden Necklace is a knockout. Each rounded bead retains just the right amount of translucence to let light ignite the velvety, violet hues. Each gem is hand set on double-knotted jeweler’s thread. The entire length secures with a .925 sterling silver lobster clasp finished in gold. The 18″ necklace (with 2″ extender) hangs with the same weight and elegance as similar strands that sell for hundreds more. The entire collection is truly fit for a goddess!
