The jewelry designers of the Art Deco period embraced modernism and the advances in technological innovation and machinery. A new genre of the design was born – bold, geometric shapes with clean lines and symmetry, providing a more industrial feel.
This Art Deco set ring features a lovely amethyst checkerboard stone on delicately detailed shoulders. Any February birthdays, this is a great one for you. Additionally, because of its wine-like color, early Greek legends associated amethyst with Bacchus, the god of wine. Other legends reflected beliefs that amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in business affairs. It is a perfect stacker and addition to any gemstone collection so do not miss out on this babe.
