This is a lavender purplish natural amethyst gemstone, of approximately 8.51 carats, commonly referred to as Rose de France. Highly prized in the beginning of the twentieth century and characterized by its light purple shade, it has become something of a rare gemstone. They are usually mined in Southern Brazil. This particular gem is of superior quality. It features an outstanding cushion cut showing clear cut facets an no scratches. Amethysts measure 7 on Mohs scale and is considered, therefore, a durable, hard stone.

This beautiful ring is solidly prong set and features an elaborate outer rim made out of a scallop design and a lacy undercarriage. It is crafted in solid 18K solid bright gold and the design recalls the Art Nouveau school of jewelry making. The ring shoulders are elegantly attached and prolong the graceful movement of the design. The ring weighs a good 5.8gram and has a substantial feel to it.

The ring is in excellent vintage condition. From daytime to nighttime, it looks regal on the hand!
