Dated 1901 Amethyst Solitaire Ring
The years surrounding the Edwardian era also incorporated the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements. Jewelry from this period could be rather imaginative, in terms of both design and the materials of choice as well as more traditional. Rings however were a tad limited due to the nature of their shape. “Innovations” came in the form of the solitaire setting and certain gemstones remained in favor.
Amethyst was one of those gems which maintained its status at the turn of the 20th century. Typically rich in color, this estimated 4.5 carat oval faceted natural amethyst solitaire has a wide 9k rose gold bezel placed within a mount of size. Sculptural shoulders with stylized foliate designs appoint the sides and transcend to a smooth silken shank. English hallmarks are engraved to the interior.
