The story: Amethyst is a stone whose meaning is closely linked to love. 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 ecclesiastic outfits. In addition, amethyst adorned the pastoral ring, a gold ring mounted with an amethyst as a sign of fidelity.
