Amethyst Ring by British Royal Jeweler in Original Box with Receipt

About

They created the Sovereign’s Sceptre featuring the 530.2 carat Cullinan I diamond, the Crown of Queen Elizabeth set with the Koh-i-nûr diamond (which they cut) and what is arguably the most famous ring of all time: the sapphire and diamond engagement ring worn by Princess Diana and now the Duchess of Cambridge. And in 1964, the legendary British royal jeweler, Garrard, created this sumptuous 18k gold ring centered with an emerald-cut 10-carat amethyst which flashes blue and red and makes you understand why amethyst was once considered one of the most precious gems on earth, to be worn only by royalty. This amethyst is as fine as an amethyst can be: it contains long, slender needles of red hematite, making it all the more precious and exotic. Surrounding this vivid stone are thirty single-cut diamonds which are set into platinum and total just shy of .5 carat. They add a shimmer around the stone, italicizing it, not competing with it. Astoundingly, this magnificent and astoundingly rare ring will arrive to you in its original Gerrard & Co LTD ring box along with the original sales receipt that shows the ring was created in 1964 and sold in 1965. Currently a size 4.5, it could be resized by your local jeweler taking care to maintain the hallmarks on the interior of the band. Gerrard was dismissed as the official Crown Jeweler in 2007 ending a reign of 164 years. Their creations from that century-and-a-half are among the most famous and impressive jewels ever created. A finer amethyst ring with a pedigree such as this one possesses I have not seen before. A genuine treasure. And the ultimate amethyst statement ring. Suitable for any woman or any man with a regal nature.
