The Sparks Amethyst Engagement Ring. A wonderful example of antique Edwardian jewelry, this circa 1913 stunner is centered by a deeply saturated, velvety and rich royal purple gemstone. At a sizable 6.50 carats of emerald cut beauty and held within a platinum milgrained bezel surrounded by a scrolling, near 1 carat diamond halo of old European cut rounds that twinkle with an inner fire that only these vintage gems possess. A cocktail ring that makes a statement, you will enjoy wearing this heirloom on any finger, day or night.
Because of its wine-like color, early Greek legends associated amethyst with Bacchus, the god of wine. Other legends reflected beliefs that amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in business affairs. Because amethyst was associated with wine, it was believed that wearing amethyst prevented drunkeness.
