Although the Valentine holiday is over, we couldn't help but reminding visitors to Ruby Lane that a wonderful gift is welcome any time of the year. There is still time for the February birthstone--a beautiful amethyst would "fill the bill". Here we offer one of the most popular designs of the 1920s.
Mounted in a 144K gold filagree setting is a soft color of purple approximately 10 carats in size. It is surrounded by tiny seed pearls strung on invisible wire. The pearls make a frame for the amethyst and enhance its color.
The ring is a size 5.5 and weighs 6.9 grams. the top measures 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch and sits 1/4 inch above the finger. there is a 14K mark inside the shank. A competent jeweler can easily change the size if necessary.
The ring is an excellent value and is in very good condition.
