Vintage 1980's Ladies Fancy Amethyst & Pave Diamond Cocktail Ring - 14 Kt. Yellow & White Gold Setting - 8.9 Grams - Size 9.
Acquired in the 1980's from the same New York jeweler where many of my fine gold and gemstone jewels listed on Ruby Lane were also purchased. The ring was new and American made and marked inside the shank 14K, since it was resized larger to fit the mark no longer appears, but it was clearly shown when I purchased this ring for myself. It is a ring I loved to wear but I would need to re-size it larger again and I prefer to list it in my shop for someone else to enjoy wearing.
Although purchased years ago, the ring is timeless, classic and elegant. The overall shape is rectangular measuring 21mm long x 18mm across, the profile is 11mm high. The photographs show all angles of the ring and how it is constructed with a 14 Kt. yellow gold shank and 14 Kt. white gold setting for the double row halo total of 44 round brilliant pave diamonds that surround the faceted step cut amethyst.
Amethysts come in all shades of purple, from very pale to very deep. This ring has a beautiful lilac medium color hue that is not too pale or washed out. Amethysts measure 7 on Mohs scale of hardness with diamonds 10 being the hardest. The emerald cut center stone measures 11mm x 7mm which is approximately 2.5 to 3 carats, the stone is held in place with four white gold prongs placed at each corner. The ring weighs 8.9 grams and is size 9, but any jeweler can size it to fit your finger, it was originally size 7 when purchased. The shank measures 4mm and tapers down to 3mm.
Amethysts are traditionally the gemstone for the month of February, but are highly cherished even if it is not your birthstone. It is comfortable to wear and the elongated design is very flattering on your hand.
