Amethyst, Enamel, Diamond Cluster Ring

Throughout history, amethysts have been believed to keep the wearer clear-headed and quick-witted. The name comes from the Ancient Greek, referring to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness and thus, seduction. It has also often been associated with royalty; especially in English history and is often seen in royal jewels and regalia. This beauty is a later version of an early Victorian ring; an almost exact copy of one that my grandmother wore from her own antique jewelry collection. The clear purple central stone is surrounded by lovely bright royal blue enamel interspersed with 10 approximately 5 pt diamonds for a total carat weight of .50 carat. The shoulders are accented in a blue enamel design continuing the theme.
