Wonderful vintage Mexican sterling silver bracelet with a large natural amethyst ornately set in the center. Bracelet has a modern feel and look though it is a vintage piece. Amethyst is clear and large in scale measuring slightly under 1-1/4" long by just under 3/4" wide. Amethyst sits in a silver stylized kidney shaped bowl which is 2 -1/4" long by 1-1/2" wide and is attached to two hinged bracelet panels which close with a box clasp. It is held in by abstract vine shaped prongs which reflect the light and color of the stone. Hallmarked with: Hecho en Mexico D.F 925, stamped « sterling » and with a heart shaped stamp with two dots above it with the initials A.E. in the center. I have been told that maker is known as "AE Heart" and/ or "AEM" but know nothing more of he maker. This fabulous bracelet is hand wrought, a quality piece with great design and construction. Measures: 7" around the inner circumference and just over 2-1/4" across wide. In great vintage condition with only light signs of wear from age and use. No ding or dents or cracks. Stone is free of chips and secure in its setting. Clasp closes firmly.
