Exceptional Lavender Marquis Cut Amethyst In Custom 14K Filigree Setting
Exquisite by every measure. This vintage ring comes to us in a box by Neiman Marcus that shows a bit of wear over the years. We're told by the estate that this is the box the ring has always been in, although none can remember its origin other than to say it was "a really, really expensive ring." We can only say that Neiman Marcus would be proud to have such a piece in their inventory.
It's easiest to default to the pictures to tell the story. This is a substantial ring in size and is self-promoting from every angle. Crafted in 14K gold, it features a beautiful marquis-cut Amethyst of ideal deep lavender. The Amethyst measures approximately 12mm x 8mm by measure in the setting. The ring has a north-south measure of 20mm - a significant presence on your finger. The craftwork is just a visual treat, and it's hard to turn your eye away. The ring weighs a hefty 8.6 grams so in no way is it a lightweight. We note that the ring was resized, but the work was done well and is unobtrusive.
