Arris carved yellow gold and amethyst cocktail ring

This one’s a beauty! Available now from our collection, this yellow gold and amethyst cocktail ring combines a gorgeous purple amethyst with generous amounts of 18-carat yellow gold in a fluidly curved, asymmetric design. The newest addition to our Arris ring series, this hand-carved cocktail ring was created especially for the 7.24 carat fancy-cut amethyst and is one-of-a-kind. Its sculptural design features sweeping curves that flow around the band and sides of the ring. This unique and luxurious statement ring is crafted by hand and designed to last for generations.

The unusual fancy cut amethyst makes this ring an especially interesting piece. The stone is smoothly curved on the top but tapers into a pointed ridge at the back, which creates unusual refections within the stone.  The lovely liquid quality of these reflections is emphasised by the dull satin finish of the gold surrounding it, which creates a perfect backdrop for the stone. The warm yellow hue of the metal compliments and enhances the rich purple hue of the amethyst.

When creating our Arris rings the sides and back of the ring are designed with as much care and attention as the top. Unexpected details and flowing curves can be seen on all sides. To appreciate this sculptural ring fully it must be turned and viewed from all angles.
