An oval cabochon amethyst takes centre stage of this dramatic textured 18ct gold ring by Tiffany & Co. Made in the 1980s, this ring is a statement piece, a perfect demonstration of design and craftsmanship, it is great fun to wear. Tiffany & Co. need no introduction, and have always been synonymous with exceptional jewellery design. This immensely stylish ring pairs a vividly purple amethyst with a warm yellow gold, in a highly textured finish typical of the 1970s, where pioneering jewellers such as Andrew Grima, Charles de Temple and Pierre Sterlé were taking inspiration from the natural crystal and mineral forms of the precious materials they were using. The amethyst boast a depth of purple hues that dance throughout this polished gemstone. Typical of the quality expected of jewels by Tiffany & Co., the smoothly domed amethyst contrasts beautifully with the organic roughness of the mount, creating an imaginative and tactile vintage jewel, juxtaposing colour and texture, which is also extremely wearable today.
