Vintage Amethyst Gold Cocktail Ring 16ct

Did you know that amethyst has long been associated with Dionysus, the Greek God of wine? The story goes that Dionysus, in his regular drunken state, was pursuing a maiden named Amethystos, who rebutted his affection. She prayed to the gods that she might remain chaste and pure and the goddess Artemis answered her prayers by changing her to a pillar of pure white stone. When Dionysus saw this, in his grief he poured his wine over her, turning the stone to purple. This myth gave the ancients the idea that wearing amethyst would protect the wearer from drunkenness, and the word Amethyst translates as ‘not drunk’.

Maybe that makes this ring perfect for nights out and cocktails with the crew? Well, I don’t think this ring will protect you from result of many trips to the bar, but it will keep you looking while you’re at it!

Hand crafted in 18 karat gold, this stunning but simple box out holds a rich purple stone which measures 17x13.57x9.8 mm and weighs approximately 16 carats. The ring face measures 17.2 mm from top to bottom and 15 mm across, it sits 9.7 mm off the finger and narrow to 2 mm at the back of the band. This 1960s era ring is unmarked but has been carefully acid tested to verify it’s metal content. The ring is a size 7.5 and could be resized to suit, it weighs 9.5 grams.
