Amethyst and pearl necklace

Amethyst and pearl necklace


This charming pendant really encapsulates the style of the Art Nouveau period, that reached its apogee in the late 19th - early 20th century. The scrolling details give it a very naturalistic feel and its delicate form creates a balanced shape. The integral chain is accented by the inclusion of a round cut amethyst that finishes off the piece with a nice flourish. 
Englsih - c.1905

It comprises three amethysts, one oval cut the other two round cut, of a rich deep purple, all well matched, and twelve delicate and glossy pearls. The amethysts and main pearls are millgrain set giving them a little sparkle and a secure setting. 

Hallmarks: The pendant is marked on the back 9ct. 

Condition: The whole piece is in lovely original condition with no replaced stones or pearls. All settings are in tact.
