Here is a fabulous piece of Edwardian wearable artwork. Hand fabricated in 18 karat white gold, this piece features amazing filigree work, along with delicate engraving which extends into the shoulder's of the ring. Four split prongs secure the amethyst into the mounting. The amethyst features intaglio work on the stone. Intaglio is an engraving in a stone or other hard material, depressed below the surface, so that an impression is created into the stone. This particular carving features a silhouette of a woman facing left, similar to an image you would find on a cameo. A very sweet and unique detail.
