And the sky was made of amethyst

Although my birth stone is technically the diamond, I have been devoted to the color purple for as long as my relatives can remember. My aunt loves to remind me of the haphazard kiddo pronunciation I would employ as a toddler (which sounded more like "poupull" than purple). So I was excited to be contacted by the folks from Anjolee when they asked me if I would review an amethyst and diamond necklace. Their unique website offers customizable pieces (diamond necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, etc.) that you can design based on your preferences. I selected a white gold necklace with an amethyst and diamond pendant (though, in this case the "diamonds" from my necklace are actually cubic zirconia). It arrived in a very shiny wooden box and I couldn't wait to wear it.

Since then, I've paired the necklace with so many different types of outfits, both dressy and casual. Here I paired it with a skirt from Anthropologie and a top from Ann Taylor Loft. In wearing it, I've noticed a few things that I am happy to share for the review. While I love the look of the very delicate, simple chain, the clasp is tiny and a little difficult to fasten without the assistance of a friend. I have no trouble removing it myself. The amethyst pendant stays front-facing most of the time and the clasp of the necklace didn't seem to migrate toward it. It looks really nice with other silver-toned/white gold jewelry, so I enjoy layering the piece with things I already have. This necklace would make a lovely bridesmaids gift or occasion present. I know I loved receiving one!

Anjolee have expressed interest in hosting a giveaway for my readers in the near future so be sure to keep an eye out for that! Thanks for reading!

Ooh, lovely necklace!  Amethyst is my birthstone, but I don't wear it as much as I should given how beautiful the color is.

pretty- I like the delicacy of it against my usual inclination to wear big jewellery!  The amhara skirt looks gorgeous with that deep eggplant-y top.  Love.  I will definitely try and step up my amhara game!

The necklace is gorgeous.  It's definitely a piece of jewelry that you can pair with dressy or casual outfits. 

BTW, I think I have the same top from Loft! :)  I love the way you styled it.

Purple is my favorite color, and I always love the part in Anne of Green Gables when Anne talks about how she thought diamonds would look like amethysts.  Lovely necklace and skirt!

I love Amethyst. Did you know Amethyst is actually Purple Quartz? I have the Amhara Skirt too. I've worn it once. Love it with the Purple Top. I need one of those. I will definitely watch for your giveaway.

Purple is one of the few underrepresented colors in my wardrobe, which is odd cause I love the color. And you look lovely in darker shades of purple!
