PICK N MIX RING [purple]
9ct yellow gold and amethyst stacking ring
The Pick’n’Mix Ring is inspired by the designer’s love for hard-boiled sweets and vintage sweet shops, where childhood money was exchanged for carefully chosen penny sweets. This 9ct yellow gold stacking ring is set with a vivid amethyst cabochon, mirroring a delicious violet-flavoured hard-boiled sweet. This amethyst ring can be worn on its own or layered with other thin bands, making it a very versatile piece.
Purple amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate and soothe both the mind and emotions. As early as the Roman era, this gemstone was linked to the month of February, and thus Neptune their water-god; it later became associated as the stone of St. Valentine and again, by default, connotations of faithful love and passion.
Amethyst itself is most commonly found as a purple quartz, with tones ranging from pinkish-violet to deep bluey-purple. The best amethysts can be found in Siberia, Sri Lanka and Brazil. As a stone, it has always held significant importance in the depiction and representation of power. Fine specimens of the gemstone are featured in the British Crown Jewels and in the collections of Cleopatra and Catherine the Great. The latter loved the stone so much that she sent thousands of miners down into the Ural Mountains to search for the gemstones.This ring is available immediately in size N, but can be adapted to any ring size.
