Featuring such fantastic creatures as the narwhal, a dragon, and a hound. Surrounding a lovely giant amethyst. 14K. This was a really fun one to carve, need I even mention? (More pics after the click 🙂
The curved backside here keeps the point of the amethyst from stabbing the wearer, but also allows a little more light into the stone through the pavilion. And you sometimes get a peek of bright purple through the side as well.
