I do not use the word "Mesmerizing" lightly...the genuine amethyst beads on this necklace are some of the most stunning amethyst beads I have had the pleasure of seeing. I tried to show the richness of the color in the photographs. each bead appears to be hand-made and polished.
This necklace is a wearable 32" length comprised of 8mm deep translucent purple amethyst beads terminating with a 14K gold folder clasp that is hallmarked "K14" (standing for 14K gold) and a Triangle with what appears to be a "K" inside. I have not been able to locate this hallmark but I did learn that using the K14 (rather than 14K) was commonly used on gold in Victorian era. The front of the clasp is etched with two symbols which may be decorative or may be indicative of the maker/designer.
Total weight is just shy of 3 ounces (2.95 to be exact). I am pricing these to sell as I picked them up for a great price. Don't pass these up, I assure you, you will NOT be disappointed!
