Completely unique. This incredibly butter yellow 22k gold ring is referred as a belcher setting, meaning the gem is prong set flush with the top of the ring and the prongs are a part of the design and ring itself. This ring is unique for several reasons, one is the fineness of the gold, 22k was quite unusual in a ring of this design in the late 1800's when this was made. Another unique quality of this ring is the gemstone, the Amethyst is a buff top cut, which refers to the fact that the top of the gem is polished without facets and the bottom of the gem is elaborately faceted and viewed thru the smooth surface of the top. A real treasure. Vintage, Antique, ethical and one of a kind.
