One of the beauties of natural gemstones is that they are not perfect. Most contain tiny imperfections to their interiors, and with the foibles of nature some display several different hues in one gem.
This natural amethyst shows this to perfection with the variation in color - from deep purple to lilac to the palest of shade of purple. Every move you make shows off the color shifting aspects.
Striking Edwardian design and craftsmanship is equally suited for a man or woman. The main attraction is an unusually large amethyst with a low profile. The eight-sided faceted 5.25 carat gem is set into an ornate 18k yellow gold mounting.
Lovely foliate forms embellish the entire setting. Even the trumpet shaped shoulders show off the flower design. An under-gallery of open circular elements adds a sensual touch to the impressive antique ring of distinction.
