Very pretty Victorian ring. Hallmarked 14K. The band is nice and wide--measuring almost 1/4". The Amethyst is a medium purple color. There are 16 prongs holding the stone. Some of the prongs need to be re-tipped, but the prongs holding the stone work well. The Amethyst does not move in its setting. The Amethyst measures approx. 10mm X 5mm. Weight is 3.1 grams. The gold could be slightly rose gold. Ring size is 5. Re-sizing is fine as the back of the band is plain gold. Condition is fair. Minor chips to corners, and surface dirt. I would date this nice Victorian ring at c 1880's-1900.
