This is an incredible 18k solid gold ring set with a giant electric purple amethyst. The design of the ring is based on ancient Etruscan ring designs. The Etruscans pre-dated the Romans in what is now southern Italy. I like this design because it has a lot of intricate granulation especially on the band. This is a medium to heavy weight ring with just over 10.0 grams of 18k gold.
The gemstone is from Rwanda and is what most people call electric purple because besides a deep purple base color it will show flashes of deep blue as well. This is the best of the best when it comes to amethyst. It is a large piece that is clean and bright with no color zoning (variation in hue or density)
The ring at its widest point is approx. 5/8” wide (at the front – top to bottom) and the band is approx. 3/8” at the back. It is a medium-heavy weight ring with over 10.0 grams of solid 18k gold.
