Antique Victorian 9ct Yellow Gold Amethyst Split Pearl Ring

When one wants to make a statement!  This large and impressive ring started its life in the Victorian era as an Amethyst brooch but was skillfully converted to the more wearable and stunning piece you see today.

Set to the centre with a large natural oval faceted Amethyst measuring large 1.7cm x 1.2cm or approximately 8cts, surrounded halo style with 18 natural split pearls which are creamy white and well matched and all original to the piece.

With a large and showy finger spread of 2.5cm x 2.0cm and low rise, nice and flat to the finger, this ring is surprisingly comfortable to wear.

Crafted from 9ct yellow gold both to the setting and later shank, which again has been done with skill and care with very little evidence.
