The large amethyst in this vintage pendant is a medium tone and very eye catching. The faceted amethyst is a natural gemstone and has inclusions that can be seen in the photos and refract the light and give the stone added sparkle. It is prong set in an unusual, openwork, yellow gold frame that is marked 585 14 Kt. on the bale. The stone measures approximately three quarters of an inch by one half of an inch and the pendant is one and one eighth inches long excluding the bale, and about seven eighths of an inch across. The bale is about one half an inch long and the pendant weighs 6.5 grams. The amethyst pendant is in excellent condition and would make a great gift for anyone who loves the color purple or has a February birthday.
