A long time ago, we took a class on enameling. It sounded easy. Bend and solder some metal into place and then paint on the enamel. Piece of cake, right? Wrong. It was hard! It takes a steady hand and a patient mind to paint the enamel on just right and then fire it and go in for round two. And three. And four. Don’t forget you have to keep the color consistent and even. And the layers can’t be too thick. Now, toss in a juicy oval amethyst and ka-pow! You’ve got this baby.
What We Love About It: The pretty green enameled corner details and the strong juicy oval amethyst. The color combo reminds us of a spring day. And then you “turn the corner” (or move your hand) and you catch the filigree work. Beautiful.
The Deets: The ring is modeled in 14kt white gold (shank and gallery and topped with 14kt yellow gold and black and green enamel, all surrounding a delicious oval natural, faceted, bezel-set amethyst (17mm x 13mm). There is some wear to the green enameled areas. The black is totally intact. It’s currently a size US 8 but could easily be sized up or down a couple of sizes by our jeweler (see above for details and pricing) or by yours.
Springtime, all the time, on your finger. Now that’s a little bit of heaven.
