Edwardian Amethyst, Pearl, and Enamel Floral Ring in Yellow Gold by Wolcott Mfg. Co.
This stunning ring was made by the Wolcott Mfg. Co, a jewelry maker based in Providence, RI from 1906-1922. The center stone is a large natural, cushion cut amethyst that's bezel set in yellow gold and framed by a collection of seed pearls. Each of the stone's compass points is embellished by a floral motif. While the shoulders of the ring have groups of three green enamel leaves, the north-south sides of the stone have an enamel rosette. The band has a pattern of engraved chevrons that are bisected by a black enamel stem.
Some pieces transcend being categorized merely as jewelry and are, in fact, art. This ring is among them.
