Five beautifully faceted amethysts are mounted in a decorative 15K gold frame. The design is typical of many Georgian pieces. We believe it was originally created as a pendant. The pin and safety clasp may be later additions.
The gold work is delicate and enhances the glow of the amethysts. Finely detailed prongs securely hold each stone. On close examination we noticed one of the prong is missing on the upper right side of the top amethyst. This has no affect on the structure of the pendant.
This charmer measures 2 inches by 2 ¼ inches. It is the perfect jewel for the summer season. The color reminds us of the beauty of lilacs.
