This is not your typical dainty antique lavalier: with its large central amethyst surrounded by seed pearls set in gold, this brooch/pendant demands attention. The squarish cushion cut amethyst dominates, its size reinforced by two additional round amethysts flanking it on outriggers. A period-perfect design of swirling seed pearls surrounds the central stone.

The piece is wearable as both a brooch and pendant with a removable bale and its original hooded "C" clasp.

SIZE: 1-3/4" long x 1-3/8" wide including the bale. Central amethyst is 15mm long x 11mm wide

MARKS: "9ct"; some scratched-in numbers on the back, probably from either the manufacturer or a jeweler; and a stamped "H" which is probably a maker's mark.

AGE: circa 1900

CONDITION: very good antique condition. There are a few small scratches on the large amethyst.
