This is a cute little ring with its small oval deep deep purple Amethyst inset in a Sterling Silver band. As deep purple as it is when held up to light its so pale which is really cool.The band is quite wide but very comfortable. It is approximately a size 7, and would be ideal for formal occasions as well as informal!
