When was the last time you bought something a queen couldn't afford? Catherine the Great was a famous lover of amethyst and almost always got what she wanted, but even the famously fabulous Russian ruler couldn't quite meet the asking price of Brazil's perfect purple amethysts — which were widely recognized as the world's finest. Instead, Catherine sent an army of thousands to mine the Ural Mountains in hopes of finding her own supply of gems.
Today you can have that same stone Catherine longed for. The Amethyst Catherine Ring is set with a sizeable Brazilian amethyst of 9 ½-carats, which will add a distinctly regal touch to your finger without the need to dip into the royal coffers. It also delivers impressive fire, thanks to the 18 lab-created DiamondAura® rounds embedded in the rose gold-finished sterling silver ring. Because we admire the queen's commitment to affordable luxury, the Catherine Ring is at a royally good price for a lot of purple beauty.
