Captivating quintet of royal deep purple old natural amethyst gemstones sparkle shoulder-to-shoulder across your finger in this mid 1800s antique Victorian ring.

The ring is engraved in script with the initials TR MMM on the back of the gemstone setting. Hailing from Chester, England, the ring is an exceptional choice for the February birthday, alternative engagement ring or doubling as a wedding or anniversary ring. A true classic.
