This beautiful vintage amethyst solitaire ring crafted in 9 carat yellow gold is a true piece of timeless elegance. Dating back to 1976, it showcases a round cut amethyst gemstone that captivates with its enchanting lilac allure. The amethyst sparkles brilliantly with every movement of the hand catching light from all angles. Its design is both bold and refined, featuring wide shoulders that provide a balanced setting for the amethyst which gracefully taper towards the back of the band ensuring comfort whilst maintaining a striking visual impact. The warmth of the gold compliments the serene lilac hue of the amethyst creating an eye catching and sophisticated piece. In very good vintage condition with minimal light wear and full 9ct gold hallmark to inner shank. There is a nibble to the face of the amethyst situated under one claw which is only really noticeable under close inspection. We have reflected this when pricing the piece. A stunning ring which not only reflects the style of the mid 1970s but also remains a versatile and cherished piece of jewellery today.

Care Instructions

Chemicals and chlorine can damage jewellery. It is recommended that you remove it when using body care products, spraying perfume or hairspray, bathing, swimming and whilst doing housework.

Settings and stones can be damaged by accidentally striking the hand against a hard surface. It is best to remove rings when carrying out any manual work or gardening.

To clean your jewellery use tepid water and a few drops of mild soap, a soft jewellery brush or cloth.

Extra care should be taken with opal, turquoise and pearl as these are porous so soaking should be avoided.  To clean wipe with a damp soft cloth and avoid extreme changes in temperature.

When you are not wearing your jewellery it is best stored away in a suitable jewellery box for safekeeping.
