A beautiful mid century carved amethyst and diamond ring, Circa 1950.
This lovely piece has a large carved amethyst representing a violet flower. There is a claw set sparkling diamond which creates the center.
The carving has a wonderful natural look. This ring matches the carved amethyst and nephrite pendant which is also listed in my shop.
The size of the amethyst is 21 mm (13/16 inch) at the longest section. It is 15 mm or 5/8 inch at the widest part.
The diamond is very sparkly and approximately 0.06 carats.
The ring itself is made with 14 k yellow gold (hallmarked 585) and the diamond is set in 14 k white gold.
This has obviously been a well loved ring. It has two small chips, which are visible under magnification. They have been polished to replicate the tactile effect of rest this lovely carving.
The ring size is: 8 (US, Canada); Q (Australia, UK, NZ, Ireland); 18 (Germany, Belgium, Scandinavia); 16 (India, Japan, China)
The ring weighs 5.5 grams.
