Such a cool piece, this large Amethyst gemstone vintage pendant has a minimalist look to it. The large top bail attaches to the large pear shaped stone with a stem that splits in the back and functions as prongs at the base of the pear shaped stone. I am not a Gemologist, but the Amethyst has great color and the stone itself measures ¾” inch long, ½” wide and 3/8” deep. With the bail, the pendant measures a full inch long. The closed bail is fairly large to support a chain or rope and it is marked 14k. A spectacular pendant, it’s simplicity of design allows the maximum light penetration and color, especially with the depth of this stone. It can be worn alone on a chain or with other chains and necklaces. It is a modernistic design, but so simplistic, it can be worn with any other necklace or chains. A great way to show off a great stone. I am sure this Amethyst is about 5 carats or more. Collectible, wearable, fashionable always, your wardrobe will be enhanced, as well as your jewelry collection with this vintage pendant. Pair this pendant with the ring and bracelet I will also have listed to have a complete set!
