$199.95


Price REDUCED by 50%. Found by my Aunt and I in my grandmother's attic. Given to me to liquidate. This is a Vintage 16 gem Amethyst Ring that is no longer seen. Set in Sterling Silver (authenticity stamped). SIze 10, but I can reduce it to 8 or 9 easily and maybe a 7. At purchase, just email me and let me know if you want me to re-size the ring; otherwise, I will send at size 10 (your local jewelry can readily re-size if you choose). This is a very unusual piece of Victorian Jewelry that will be unusual and stunning when worn or simply added to a collection of antique and vintage gems and jewelry.

If we need to resize the ring, the shipping time will be from 5-7 days (it's probably easier and cheaper for you to have this done by your local jeweler). Otherwise my usual 1-3 day shipping applies.

Amethyst Mysticism and Lore:
When this gem is worn, it is believed to ward off guilt and self deceptions. It is also used to help overcome addictions and curb over-indulgence, and bestow good judgment. Amethyst is believed to lend courage to its wearer and is thought to be a powerful protection amulet for travelers, warding off thieves, harm, illness, and danger. This stone is ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune and by water. Amethyst has been used for 2000 years in magical rituals. Today it is placed under one’s pillow to drive off insomnia and nightmares. It produces peaceful sleep and prophetic dreams. Some modern mystics place amethyst with tarot cards and runestones to enhance their psychic power. In Middle Ages, many people thought that amethyst increased intelligence and made the wearer more shrewd in business; also, it was believed to protect the wearer from witchcraft and black magick being directed against them.

All Quartz Gems, e.g. amethyst, citrine, prasiolite, have significant electromagnetic properties; hence, the use of quartz crystals in all sorts of electronics. These gems have a pair of electrons on their surface, which are not bound and neutralized; this results in a charge which is transmitted to the environment of the gem. The gem transmits electromagnetic energy to its surroundings!!!! This is a physical fact. This is clearly a quantum physics based scientific explanation for some of the lore and mysticism noted above.
