Stunning doesn’t begin to describe this ring.
Featuring a square step-cut Amethyst which is split claw set to each corner and then set in to a a beautifully scrolled setting with ornate bead to each shoulder terminal.
Hand crafted around 1920-1940, from 18ct gold which happens to be that lovely cross between rose and yellow gold that only antique jewellery can achieve.
Sits wonderfully on the finger, elegant and refined and the Amethyst is a deep lush purple of possibly Siberian quality.
Amethyst 7mm x 7mm / Approx 1.60ct
Face shoulder to shoulder 1.5cm
Rise from finger approx 5mm
750 (For 18ct gold)
Unidentifiable makers mark / Possibly Russian mark
Approx Q or 18.3mm diameter (Sizeable)
Very good, no chips or abrasions to Amethyst. No thinning to band. One tip of split-claw is missing, however stone has been assessed as very secure, only noting for accuracy.
