A lovely romantic necklace from a long time ago... How many waltzes did it dance? Did it run down the stairs and lose a shoe? We may never know but one thing we are sure - it's a beauty!
Made of solid 14k rose gold, the scrolled center pendant is adorned with beautiful tiny seed pearls. It holds an intensely purple pear-cut amethyst capped by three seed pearls.
The necklace length is 15.75". The pendant is 1" at the widest point and 1 9/16" at the tallest point.
The pendant and chain construction indicate this necklace was made around the 1900s. The clasp is a replacement. Each component carefully tested, only the clasp is marked 14k. Maker unknown. Total approximate weight is 6 grams.
It is in excellent condition, ready to wear. Amethyst is the birthstone for the month of February and pearls for the month of June.
