Art Deco Amethyst Cabochon and Diamond Ring
ABOUT THIS RING
It's impossible to be neutral about purple. Cheerful and playful, while also associated with power and majesty, it dares you to ignore it. Held in a cool scalloped setting that crowns a magnificent mounting sparing no detail--fancifully pierced and glittering with lively European-cut diamonds--the all-out luscious, 9.25 carat vivid royal purple amethyst cabochon in this Jazz Age marvel will have all eyes on you. Total diamond weight, 1.25 carats. Hand fabricated in platinum, circa 1920s-30s, the thoroughly engraved shank is currently ring size 5 3/4.
