This is a truly amazing Victorian necklace or belt, and I can honestly say I have not seen anything like this in my over 20 years of selling antiques. The necklace is heavy sterling silver, set with SIX large round brilliant cut genuine amethysts. There is a large medallion set with an amethyst at the bottom connected by double rope chains and 5 smaller medallions with amethysts around the necklace. I took this piece to my jeweler and he confirmed that these are genuine amethysts. They measure about 17mm in diameter and 10 or 11mm deep... I have estimated that each amethyst is 15 carats, or about 90 carats total for the six. The piece measures 28" long, and weighs a heavy 159.6 grams. The bottom medallion measures 2 3/4" by 2 1/2". This is an incredible piece... you will be extremely pleased.
