The Statement: Amethyst & Pearl Vintage Ring
Post-war jewelry underwent a change with naturalistic designs and three-dimensionality taking over and the former scarcity of precious stones and metals recouping with a vengeance. Natural pearls were making a comeback and cluster rings became quite fashionable once again.
Here the cluster ring is portrayed with a luscious oval faceted natural amethyst within a modified cut down 14k yellow gold bezel accented with a multiplicity of claws. The large amethyst of an estimated 8 carats and about 13 x 17 mm in size is framed with a surround of twenty (20) half seed pearls each mounted within its own ridged crimped gold setting. The under gallery, a spectacle of open work design is reminiscent of the underside of a dahlia in bloom. Quite fitting for a statement making hand.
Measurements: 1-1/16 inches (2.7 cm) in length by 7/8 of an inch (2.3 cm) in width and rises 3/8 of an inch (0.9 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 9.1 grams (5.8 dwt).
Ring Size: US 5-3/4 (UK K-1/2; Euro 16.5, 52 mm) and can be easily sized. Ring sizing information.
