Historically the color purple has been reserved for royals and nobles. Reflecting wealth and power, it is no wonder that the amethyst has had a venerated place in jewelry.
Deep purple coloration magnifies the beauty of this round faceted amethyst of 3 carats. The choice of an 18k white gold mounting perfectly suits the 10 mm in diameter gemstone.
The contrast of the bold and vibrant amethyst against the icy white setting takes one of the tenets of Art Deco to the heights of style. Ornate motifs of flowers entwined with a basket-like weave are incorporated with a shank patterned with a wheat sheaf design.
