A is for Amethyst #Alphabetphoto


I took this picture for The Alphabet Photography Project. Charly from Podcastdove.com has started the project and the idea is to take a photo of something representing each letter of the alphabet, one a week for the next 26 weeks.

I bought this amethyst and silver ring for myself at Camden Market in London a long time ago. I loved it (and still do) for its quirky style – the two gemstones set off at different angles, the fact that it appears to include the letter ‘e’ and then I love the colour purple so its my ideal piece of jewellery. I used to wear it on the middle finger of my left hand until I got married (the first time) and it clashed horribly with my traditional and dainty looking engagement and wedding rings. I never really liked those rings much so when I got divorced I re-discovered this piece and it was like a blessed return to my true self.

Plenty of other jewellery has come and gone over the years but this is really the only item I have taken with my throughout my adult life.

    • It is pretty lovely isn’t it? I’ve never been one for expensive jewellery and I believe this only cost about £17 if I remember rightly, but to me its an artisan, unique piece and no one can say its cheap because the stones have stayed put and the silver has always polished up to a brilliant shine over the years! 🙂
