As with most pieces of pre-owned sterling jewelry, there are slight scratches in the sterling silver metal commensurate with age and wear. And, of course, this wonderful ring was worn. There are natural variations of purple colors within the amethyst gemstone, and there may also be natural cracks inside the gemstone - it is difficult to tell. There are not any chips which are visible on the amethyst face with a 10x loupe. The sterling silver patina is quite rich, and we will leave any cleaning of the ring up to the new owner.
The gemstone is not "skintight" within the four prongs, and it makes a bit of a cool rhythmic song when typing. The pictures are enlarged for viewing details. This ring is magnificent to wear - and you always have a pretty face to talk to.
