Shipping to United States: Free

Vintage - 10kt yellow gold (7.09 grams) mid to late 1900's, appx 12ctw Amethyst stone (could be real or faux ), deep purple, rectangular stone that is appx. 19.5mm x 14.3mm. Wide-prong set on corners. It sits high on the finger, with the setting like a cage around the base of the stone. It is a size 7.5. It is marked 10kt and tested 10kt too. This was a great estate find but although it was listed as amethyst I am not sure it truly is. Synthetic versus natural amethyst are very difficult to tell apart and most local labs cannot do the proper testing for amethyst as they do not have the necessary equipment plus the cost for testing would just add a significant amount to the price of the ring. It is being offered as though it is not natural amethyst and the price is set on the setting, appeal, and the fact that it is gold. I do not believe that it is true amethyst . While it is a beautiful ring and in a "make a statement" setting, the stone does not have quite the feel and look - it looks flawless but the facets are not as sharp, they are softer which you would not expect. The ring is in very good condition but I want the buyer to understand the stone. See photos. I do note that the photos are magnified and do not show the ring to be as stunning and clean and crisp as it looks - the magnification makes the stone appear flawed and it is not.


I request payment within 3 days - if you need more time, please let me know.
