DOYLE Auction Fine Jewelry – Beverly Hills – Mon, May 16, 2016 at 10am EDT, Property of a Southern California Collector
Estimate: $1,000 – $1,500 Sold for $2,000 (includes buyer’s premium)
One rectangular scissor-cut amethyst, 8 French-cut & 40 round, single & old European-cut diamonds ap. 1.40 cts., c. 1920, gold collets added later, ap. 4.5 dwts. Size 6 3/4.
This is a fabulous ring with a lively amethyst adding colour and vitality to the diamonds. Four different diamond cuts adds texture like lace to the diamond framework around that central sleek amethyst. The gold collets at each end are a later addition, a good one I think – they add definition to the design.
