I can't tell which is more impressive, the stone or the setting! The pale purple faceted real Amethyst measures 19 x 17 Millimeters and is in the shape of a heart. It sits 11 mm high. My jeweler was thrilled with the rose gold setting. He noted that it was all cut out by hand and verified that it is a real Amethyst. At the apex of the heart there is a wide tapered prong that is so incredibly elegant. The ring is a size 6.5 and weighs 7.1 grams. He estimated the stone to be approximately 6.5 carats. Please view all the photos of this. It is quite an exceptional piece.
