I carved the ring in wax then cast it in sterling silver. I cut and polished the amethyst. The stone is set in a sterling silver setting. I based this design on an old Roman ring that had a hand holding an apple. The ring is 10mm at its widest and the smallest is at the bottom and is 4mm wide. The stone measures 8mm by 6mm and is all natural with no enhancements. The ring is a size 7 and cannot be resized. If you want this ring in a different size I can make a ring like this in any size wanted,just email me with a size wanted.
