Amethysts, peridots, and diamonds assemble to form a lovely gathering across the face of this exquisite English ring. The amethysts and peridots are held in lofty prong settings, with fully-exposed backs to allow light to penetrate and illuminate their interiors. The diamonds are held in sturdy bezel settings as well, with open backs. This combination of purple, green, and white is associated with the English Suffragette Movement and was worn by women to indicate their sympathy and indeed their participation in the movement.
The ring body is a richly-crafted 18k yellow gold, with a bright and sunny color. A set of hallmarks on the inner shank face completes this piece with a bit of its history. In stunning condition, this English ring is not only lovely, it carries an important significance in the historical context of women's rights.
