Queen Victoria loved her jewels and had one for every occasion. Prior to the Victorian Era, however, we primarily saw jewelry as menswear. One phenomenon is the cocktail ring - one of the most desirable types of jewelry for genuine jewelry aficionados. They’re stylish, at times dramatic, great conversation starters, and packed with historical context.
Typically, a cocktail ring is a gemstone ring, traditionally worn to dinner parties, that usually features a prominent gemstone in the center. This example is not only compelling in height, size, and shape, this cocktail ring from the late 1990's also features a sizable, boat-like amethyst with pink and lavender notes set east-west.

Minor age wear is typical and to be expected for antique and vintage jewelry.
