I have been lucky to find another amethyst necklace, this one is shorter , but the amethysts are very nice quality. This necklace is 31 inches long. The genuine amethyst beads slightly graduate from 7.5mm to 12mm. They are hand knotted in between each bead. The clasp is heavy gold plated and has good spring action. The beads are beautifully hand faceted to bring out the sparkle and colour. C. 1880.
