What a beautiful necklace is this lovely amethyst and pearl strand.
The combination of colour, form, and texture is terrific! What you have is a 17&1/4" yellow gold chain strung with multi-faceted amethyst round beads and gleaming white baroque pearls. The amethysts (10) are natural medium purple stones, each one measuring approx. 6 mm wide; the beautifully white and lustrous pearls, 6 in total, are irregular shapes, ranging from 6 mm to 9 mm a piece. There are a further two small dark purple amethyst beads on either side of the spring ring clasp.
The necklace lies nicely around the neck, and it has a good weight of 8.8 grams. I bought the piece as an antique, but I am not sure if it is that old.
Excellent condition. No damage, light wear due to the age of the pearls, but nothing noticeable. Clasp is stamped "14kt."
