A Danhier Amethyst & Ruby ring with an edgy, antique vs. modern pull. A sophisticated avant-garde piece from French designer Christophe Danhier. Reach back to the Velvet Underground with this eclectic color combination surrounded by 18K rose gold and black rhodium. These luminous shades of color the artist has chosen look stunning together.
The large 6-1/3ct. amethyst stands out with its elegant tear drop shape setting the stage for mystery. The amethyst is deeply enhanced by the rich deep color of over 1/2ct. (.57ct.) of rubies around it.Rose gold prongs pair beautifully with the amethyst and black rhodium enriches the color of the rubies. This is truly a stellar design.
The band of the ring starts with a triple shank with black rhodium up by the amethyst. It finishes in one 18K rose gold band at the back. Vintage style rose cut diamonds set into the black rhodium shanks have a beautiful luster instead of an overbearing brilliance. Total diamond weight is over 1/2ct. (.59ct.).
Bottom line Danhier has proven himself a master designer with this combination. The whole orchestra works together allowing the amethyst to be the star of the show.
