Combining jewelry with the art of miniature sculpture dates back to classical antiquity. Cameos and gem carvings have been extant for millennia.
A gorgeous amethyst has been polished forming a convex matte surface graced with the carved image of a woman in profile. Her coiffed hair is up swept; a hint of her draped gown is evident.
The cushion cut amethyst is both faceted on the top edges as well as to the underside for extra highlights and color play. It weighs 4.5 carats of sheer lilac beauty.
The filigree setting of 18k white gold shows bow designs to the under-gallery and lacy pierced work throughout the entire top half. Art Deco in date, this vintage ring stands poised for its next incarnation as your favorite ring.
