This is a very beautiful example of Victorian jewelry dating from about 1850. Exceptional deep purple amethyst exhibits the red flashes which are coveted by collectors. This 8 x 10 mm oval amethyst is surrounded by 12 rose cut diamonds. The setting is 18K yellow gold. Currently a size 7, this ring can be sized by a competent jeweler. Antique rose cut diamonds have a beautiful, soft quality and silvery color. Unfortunately, many of these beautiful stones have been lost by jewelers recutting them into modern brilliant cuts, making this original ring very desirable to knowledgeable collectors of antique jewelry. The overall dimensions of the ring are just under 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch. Would make a fabulous engagement ring! Amethyst is considered the royal stone and is a symbol of nobility. It is the birthstone for February.
