A small but sweet brooch. This was purchased in France and is set in 800 silver. Every stone just glows. The purple Amethyst is genuine, faceted and open backed. The piece is circa 1880, Victorian period. The piece is hallmarked with an 800 stamp. These are hand cut natural tested quartz crystals, not glass paste with a very beautiful tested deep purple amethyst in the center.. All the stones are foil backed. They really look like diamonds as they were cut exactly the same way. The amethyst is collet set and each crystal is carefully bead set so they are very secure in their setting.
Condition is excellent with secure old open C clasp. It measures 1 1/4" x 7/8." It is a very fine piece which can be worn on your lapel, your favorite hat or sweater. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
