This is a gorgeous 9.66-carat emerald cut amethyst, diamond, and 14 karat white gold ring. The most beautiful quality amethyst displays the most desirable color for the species, a deep reddish-purple. The stone sparkles and glows in the sunlight with two 5 point diamonds on either side and shiny white gold. A very eye-catching and lovely ring for purple lovers and February babies!
The word amethyst comes from ancient Greece and stems from two words a- ("not") and methystos ("intoxicated"). They believed wearing amethyst prevented you from drunkenness and therefore back a favorite for Bacchus - the god of wine.
The ring is in very good condition with minimal signs of wear. The surface of the gold and stone shows light signs of wear typical of vintage jewelry. The amethyst and diamonds are securely set into the gold, and the prongs are in excellent condition. The inside of the shank is stamped 14K and what looks like a worn-out 00. It could be the maker's mark. The shank is not bent or warped. I examined the amethyst and diamonds with magnification and tested the stones.
The ring is a size 8.25 now with a ring spacer installed. If you take the spacer out the ring is a size 8.5 and can be sized. It is easy to remove the spacer, and I will upon request.
I try to show in my photographs an accurate picture of the item, and in the written description. Please take note of the size given in the description, as images can often look more significant than the actual object.
