Thank you Lisa and Jill and everyone at Danforth for the most beautiful ring I've ever seen. It looked great on the computer and when it arrived, I was amazed. Nice work and it's a big hit. Thank you again for getting it here when I needed it. We will contact you for future purchases and highly recommend your company for jewelry.

The Delhi Purple Sapphire was "trebly accursed and is stained with the blood, and the dishonor of everyone who has ever owned it," according to Edward Heron-Allen, a scientist, friend of Oscar Wilde and the last owner of the jewel.
Supposedly he tried to throw the amethyst into the Regent’s Canal to be rid of the cursed jewel. The Delhi Purple Sapphire was returned to him after three months by a jeweler who purchased it from a dredger.
By 1904, he had it locked away until after his death. However, even after the amethyst passed into the hands of the museum, it is still exerting a baleful presence on any that touched the jewel.
