Rose Gold Ring w/ Amethyst and Seed Pearls ca1934
Solid rose gold set with a beautifully faceted amethyst framed by seed pearls. The color of the amethyst is rich, almost velvety. Pearls' nacre is rich and lovely. What we love most about this early 20th century ring lies on each shoulder ~ textured yellow gold grape leaves and clusters of gold grapes cascading down the sides. Art Nouveau design and it is charming.
Dates to the early '30s. Its shank is highly polished 10kt rose gold. The eight seed pearls are prong, as is the amethyst. Marked inside the band, I.C. & S. 10k ~ hallmark of jewelry makers Castagnetta & Son, New York. All is in beautiful, ready-to-wear condition. You can wear this ring as often as you like and as long as you like. Your ring will be delivered to you in a nice gift box. Measurements: amethyst about 7mm x 5mm; pearls 1mm. Ring size: 5 ~ sizable within reason. USA shipping, handling and insurance compliments of Home Farm Antiques.
