Organic Modernist 14k Gold Twin Amethyst Orbs Ring

A vintage modern ring in an organic/brutalist style. This two stone ring is made in a vertically-oriented barbell or hourglass shape. The texture and carving of the setting is fine and delicate, in contrast its organic feel— the waisted center of the barbell is pierced and lacey; the little nubs that cover the bezel cups are tiny and numerous. This setting holds two rich purple amethyst spheres— the amethysts are half-drilled (like pearls) and mounted securely on posts that hide in the setting. Metal is 14k yellow gold. A striking and unusual mid century ring, this will be a wonderful addition to a collection of modernist jewelry, or a fine alternative engagement ring for a woman interested in design.
