Vivid Amethyst and Blue Topaz set in 14k gold makes for an impressive display of colors. This contemporary vintage ring, c1990s is a size 7 and can be resized by your local jeweler.
The color and clarity of the gemstones in this ring is superb. The center stone is a square or princess cut amethyst. It is a gorgeous cut measuring 7mm X 7mm X 5mm for a 1.49 carat weight. There are six additional princess cut amethysts, channel set, for an additional .58 carats. Above and below the amethyst are rows of channel set blue topaz (20 stones) for an additional 2.25 carat weight. Total gemstone weight is approximately 4.32 carats.
The 14k gold setting measures 14mm (nearly 5/8") north to south with the gemstones extending onto the sides of the band approximately 3/8" down from the center stone. The ring is marked 14k and has been safely tested to be so. The gold is buttery, bright and clean. The setting is a nice weight, heavier than most women's rings we see with the ring weighing 6.9 grams including the stones. There is a maker's mark next to the 14k mark which we are having difficulty ready under high magnification (it could possibly be GBF or CBF). The ring is also marked Thailand inside the band.
This is a fantastic display of gemstones in 14k gold in a stunning setting. A great ring for the February and December birthdays or the lover of gorgeous gemstone jewelry!
