The setting of this ring is timeless in its design and is so simple and elegant that it will easily suit being worn on any finger and for any occasion.
Made in London in 1988 in 9 carat gold, the ring is set with a 6.50 carat oval amethyst that has a wonderful purple colour and reflects the light so well. Sitting proud in the claw setting allows the maximum amount of light to dance through the stone, and combined with its size, will always make sure that it gets the admiration that it deserves.
This is the perfect ring for any woman of any age to wear with pride.
