Although purple has been a color used in jewelry since ancient times, there aren’t many purple gemstones. Compared to other colors such as blue, red and green that have hundreds of gemstone varieties to choose from, the number of purple gemstones is quite small.
Purple is often connected to royalty and nobility, power and wealth. It is a luxurious color and depicts prestige and class. Purple jewelry adds a touch of sophistication and elegance and is an eye-catching color.
Purple is a combination of red and blue, which are the warmest and coolest colors. As such, it combines the fierce energy of red with the calming, soothing vibes of blue for a balancing, harmonious feel.
There are many varieties of purple including violet, lilac, lavender, mauve, mulberry and wine.
