In the late 1800s, designers, thinkers, writers, and artists joined forces in an effort to return to the days of craftsmanship. Handmade designs inspired by nature, and simple, straightforward construction techniques are thus hallmarks of Arts and Crafts jewelry.
This protest resulted in Arts and Crafts jewelry pieces that are truly one-of-a-kind works of art. In fact, no two Arts and Crafts earrings, necklaces, pins, rings, pendants, or brooches are ever the same, which is one of the characteristics that makes them so attractive. This stunning ring features a sizeable plum amethyst in the center, beautifully carved, adding character to an already bold piece.
