Vertical Silver Raw Amethyst Ring, Sterling SIlver Ring
This rough amethyst features deep violet hues accented by Silver, 24k yellow gold, or Rose Gold. This raw gemstone ring also exhibits complex and interesting electroforming texture around the edges of the gemstone. This ring stacks well with other gold rings. A great gift for February birthdays, as Amethyst is the birthstone for February!
-Sterling Silver or 14k Gold Fill Shank, depending on color chosen.
~each stone is approximately 15-30mm
Unlike other popular amethyst rings on Etsy, these quality rings have a shank made with pure 14k gold fill or sterling silver, not copper. The ring is also plated with a very thick layer of 24k gold, much thicker than typical gold plating. I often refer to this process as "gold dipping". Copper is a less precious metal than 14k gold fill and sterling silver, known to turn your finger green and to tarnish very quickly under normal conditions. The silver or gold fill shank on this amethyst ring will not cause discoloration on your skin.
That being said, to attach the gemstone to the ring shank, a very small amount of copper is needed, although little to none of this metal touches your skin. Discoloration is highly unlikely with how much 14k gold fill and sterling silver is used in my rings.
You will receive one of the rings pictured above, or a ring nearly identical to the rings above. Since each amethyst is one-of-a-kind, I cannot guarantee that the gemstone you see above will be on a ring shank in your size. The color varies from pale lavender to a deep violet. If you have a preference, please let me know in the notes at checkout. :) The rings above, and your ring, will also show color differently at each angle, so what may photograph bright violet, may vary from lavender to deep purple depending on the angle. In my humble opinion, the varying colors makes these gemstones even more special.
