This ring has a whimsical side to the design. I wanted to put together a ring that stood up from the finger to give more importance to the stones but I also wanted to have stones where I could see then from most angles and I love hidden surprises in my jewelry: A stone set where you least expect it, a pendant that opens when it doesn't appear to, etc. So this ring is my homage to that concept. It is completely made from Sterling Silver and the stones are all bezel set. The main centerpiece is an orchid colored Amethyst. It is a faceted lost corners rectangular stone. the others are all Rubies. each one 2mm in diameter and also bezel set.
The two on the side of the Amethyst are slightly angled away from the main stone to allow the light to hit them at a slightly different angle and preserving the rounded profile of the top of the ring. The other two are set on the side of the Amethyst's bezel itself so that as you look down at the hand from above you still see a stone. These are the hidden surprise. The ring shank is a smooth wider low profile dome which is very comfortable on the hand. The ring which has a slightly Art Deco look to it, measures, a little over 7.5.
