This mid to 3rd Quarter classic Victorian large paste Amethyst pendant necklace is lovely. The paste (beveled glass) central stone is surrounded by the classic small (faux) seed pearls and accented with open work leaves and flowers with leaves. The mount is gold filled and the chain that accompanies it is old. We have not polished it so it shows the patina with age. It is from a living estate, a family heirloom that is helping to finance elderly care. The amethyst pendant is in very good condition as pictured. The Victorian pendant measures approximately 1.5" by 1 1/8".
