So beautiful, this wonderful antique cross is set with five sparkling faceted amethysts with stunning colour, and four rose-cut diamond accents.
The deep purple stones' lustre is remarkable! There are four oval stones, and one round-cut amethyst set in the centre. Each oval stone measures 9 x 7 mm, or 1. 75 carats. The centre stone is 8 mm, or 1.80 carats. Total weight is 8.80 carats. All the stones are open-set at the back.
The four diamonds, set at the top of narrow silver tubes, are small, but they add nice sparkle to the pendant. The piece is constructed from 9K rose gold (and silver). I am not sure if this is a Georgian piece or early Victorian.
Measures 35 mm (1&5/8") from the top of the gold jump ring by 25 mm (just over 1") across. Weight: 4.5 grams.
Excellent condition. Light antique wear in keeping with age and use. No marks but metals have been tested.
