Antique rock crystal quartz pendant with a center amethyst paste, in sterling silver. Huge in size and beautifully cut, this unusual rock crystal pendant is dazzling. Its brilliance comes from its concave surface (punctuated with a bezel set purple paste) and highly faceted sides and back. There is a sterling cap and wide bail, unmarked but tested. This fantastic pendant dates from around 1920, early Art Deco, now an antique, and comes from the collection of Ginger Moro, author of "European Designer Jewelry." It has been mine for years.
The pendant measures 2-1/4" with bail, by 1-1/4" at widest. It weighs 19.1g and is without flaws.
The chain is not included.
