Modernist 14k Gold & Amethyst Orb Ring

A vintage modern ring in minimalist style. This ring is made with dramatic, clean-line, collard shoulders that stand up on either side of the central stone: a deep purple amethyst orb. The orb is half-drilled, and perches atop a curved bar that melds into the broad, flat ring shank. Shank tapers subtly toward the back. Metal is 14k yellow gold. Cool geometrics and wonderful, balanced proportions— this ring is striking alone and wears well with other modern jewels.
