Here is a great amethyst ring set in affordable sterling vermeil. Coming from a living estate, I believe the lady purchased this ring in the 1980's along with my other topaz vermeil ring I have listed. This ring features an exquisite pear shaped royal purple amethyst measuring about 15mm long by 10mm wide or about 4 carats. It is securely set with 3 sturdy prongs. The band is very plain, not taking away from the lovely stone. The shoulder of the shank measures about 9mm and about 3mm in the very back.
Overall condition is good pre-owned. The band has some tarnish issues on the inside of the shank and a little on the outside. I had it polished at a jewelers but didn't go overboard so it wouldn't take the vermeil off. The stone has some age wear and scratches through a 10x loupe, beautiful and clean looking with the naked eye! Total gram weight is 6.2 grams. I believe the .925 mark has been worn off.
