A very pretty antique amethyst and diamond cluster necklace. Circa 1900.
The round cut amethyst is 4.4 mm diameter, and claw set in 14 k yellow gold (hallmarked). This sits above a circle of 9 round cut diamonds (1.3 mm diameter), which are bead set.
The diamond and amethyst cluster is attached by split rings to a chain, which is also 14 k yellow gold.
The full length of the necklace is 40 cm (15 and 11/16 inch), which is a smaller size than many of this era.
The necklace weighs 3.1 grams.
