Modernist setting for this gorgeous bezel set amethyst ring. It is a little unusual, probably German in origin, certainly hallmarked 585, the equivalent standard in Europe for 14K gold.
We have sourced this ring from an antique shop in Berlin, Germany that we discovered a few years ago. Several of our rings that have sold, including a Fahrner ring, were discovered in this shop. They were all gorgeous and have that German sense of style to them. By this I mean that the stones are generally set in complex settings but with the focus still very much on maintaining geometric symmetry.
This ring features a large (17mm by 11mm) bezel set gemstone sitting upon a basket type setting. You can see the craftsmanship of the ring when looking at it from the side. The facets of the gemstones create varying shades of amethyst to reflect and the oval shape of the setting is enhanced by the multiple borders.
Large Size 9 1/2 (which can be resized by your jeweller), 17mm by 11mm stone, the ring measures 1" in length by 3/4" wide, and rises just under 1/2" above the finger. It is stamped 585, which is equivalent to the 14K USA gold standard.
In very good vintage condition
