Amethyst Facts:
Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz and the most valued member of the quartz family. It must be purple to be amethyst, but it can display a range of shades including deep purple, light lilac, lavender and mauve. Top quality amethyst is a deep medium purple with rose-colored flashes. Its purple color made it a stone of royalty for many thousands of years.
The ring is circa 1855 and original to the period but has been resized by a professional jeweler. The ring’s size is 7 now and the shoulders have been engraved when the setting was made. This is a quality handmade mid-Victorian ring and gemstone.
