This beautiful , English antique pendant carries a large amethyst and seed pearls on a 15 carat gold base. It dates to the Edwardian period circa 1900-1910 .
The pendant measures 1½” (3.8cms), including the bail, by 1” (2.5cms) across the widest part. It weighs 6.4 grams.
At the centre is the most stunning purple amethyst, bezel set in the rich gold with a finely corded surround. The amethyst is faceted and open backed for maximum light reflection. Around the stone is the most exquisite arrangement of leaves and flowers, all set with lustrous seed pearls.
At the top is a bail studded with graduated seed pearls.
The reverse is neatly finished and the base is marked ’15 ct’ for 15 carat gold. The higher carat gives the gold a much richer look that the usual 9 carat.
This rare and wonderful pendant is in excellent antique condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
