Do Over: Sterling and Amethyst Ring
What happened was that I had this Elsa Peretti Open Heart knock off ring. The heart was set on pivots so it would flip over, but it kept coming off. One day, on Valentine’s Day, the heart fell off and I couldn’t find it. The shank sat on my desk for a month until I thought: Hey! I have some nice amethyst beads. Why don’t I pop one of those babies in there.
I had to readjust the shank so that the tension would hold the amethyst in place. Which means the ring will only fit on my pinky now. But I like it’s clean, modernist look. And I believe that pinky rings are the new right-hand ring.
