If we know anything about ourselves, we are confident that we will always be endlessly smitten with rare finds. Treasures from the past begging to tell us their story and adorn our fingers, we can’t get enough. Our most recent find: an extremely precious and unique ring who boasts none other than Benjamin Franklin’s profile carved out of amethyst.

 

Benjamin Franklin was many things- a literal father, a founding father, inventor, author, political activist, scientist.. he wore many hats. He was even considered a fashion icon in France during his lifetime! He was a leader of the Enlightenment and constantly explored civic and personal virtue. He contributed many things to the modern world- some discoveries in electricity (cue Franklin with a kite in a storm image), the first insurance company in America, the invention of the rocking chair, the first map of the gulf stream, a weird musical instrument used by both Mozart and Beethoven, and many more.

 

Upon his death, over 20,000 people attended his funeral. It seems as though people were still commemorating his achievements sixteen years later in 1806, on what would have been his 100th birthday. This carved amethyst ring came from the same year and is a history lesson waiting to happen. Similar rings celebrating B.F. have been seen, but never before in Amethyst (trust us, we researched high and low). The rather large purple stone is bezel set in yellow gold, and Franklin’s face is immediately recognizable with the high level of craftsmanship and detailing. We’ve truly never seen anything else like it.
