I really like this ring as it is not overly feminine but truly lovely with a large deep lavender colored amethyst (probably African or Brazilian) square cut and set into the sterling with prongs. The vermeil sterling is highly etched and mill grain worked. It is a size 9 so can be worn by either a man or a woman. Inside the band at the edge of the gallery it is marked "925". There are initials on the other side in the same area but I cannot read them. The stone looks to be 4 to 5 carats in weight. It is slightly under 1/2" long and 3/8" wide so basically square. The stone is in excellent shape as is the whole ring. Amethyst tested and it is real. Circa 1980s.
I apologize fore the fingerprint marks on the stone. It is hard to photo a ring without leaving some print on the stone. I can assure you the ring stone is gorgeous and very clean.
