|Beauty and the beach Sometimes a gemstone is much more than a stone. Sometimes it’s a reminder of sunny afternoons spent on the shore, under an immaculate blue sky, watching the waves smash themselves into rainbows. Specifically, La Digue in the Seychelles, an Indian Ocean island paradise off the coast of Africa. Endless beaches with smooth boulders, warm sand and acres of shimmering sea. Our Seychelles Green Amethyst Earrings are 15 carats of African green amethyst displayed 2 �” length with gold-finished French hooks. Wearing these earrings of green amethyst is not exactly the same as being there, but it comes awfully close.
