A spectacular antique brooch set with sixteen beautiful faceted amethysts.
I believe this piece was originally a slide buckle and professionally converted to a brooch.
Simple and elegant, the genuine amethysts are set in large rectangle that is very gently domed.
The serrated edge bezels have open backs so the light passes through the stones and reflects off the facets.
Each setting has two gold beads on the sides where the bezels meet.
Very well made and in excellent condition, no damage or visible wear, the stones are well matched for size, clarity and color.
Unmarked, the gold tested 14k with acid, it closes with a secure safety catch.
Measures 2&5/8" by 1&5/16", the amethysts are 10mm by 8mm, total weight is 18 grams.
A stunning antique Edwardian brooch in near mint condition.
