The Story: Amethyst is a stone whose meaning is closely linked to love and spirituality. Indeed, Saint Valentine of Terni, Patron Saint of lovers since the 15th century, wore this gem around his neck. Amethyst also carries a religious connotation: its purple color is synonymous with spirituality. This is the reason why it has become the color of ecclesiastical outfits. In addition, amethyst adorned the pastoral ring, a gold ring mounted with an amethyst as a sign of faithfulness.
