This is a lovely early piece by Montreal jeweler Jay Flex. It is marked Sterling and with the makers name. There is a ring of dark marquis-cut amethyst stones with an inner circle of small, lighter coloured amethyst stones. Around the outside is a row of marquis-cut Austrian crystal placed in the setting perpendicular to the amethyst of the same shape. I could not capture the glitter of the piece with the camera but the Austrian crystals really glitter and reflect off the dark amethyst that have a beautiful glow and depth of colour. A very clever setting. The piece is about 2 inches wide. I am fortunate to have two amethyst "hearts" - this one came to me by serendipity in a box of junk jewelry.

    And thanks to Phil - perhaps Jay Flex saw and/or used the "snow cones" as he was in Montreal just at the right time....
