There’s something about purple!

The pear cut amethyst in this mid-Victorian beauty serves up a gloriously deep shade of the regal colour.

It’s set off by the 14 white and bright old mine cut diamonds surrounding it.

Framing the whole – and adding distinction – are the ornately scrolled, hand-carved 18-carat yellow gold shoulders.
