Vintage 18kt Gold Amethyst & Pearl Pendant
This pretty pendant is made from 18ct gold and has been made in the Edwardian style. It has a gorgeous purple amethyst stone at its centre that is rectangular and has lovely clear cut facets showing the stone off to perfection. The stone has been tested by a Presidium gem tester and reads as an amethyst. It could be a synthetic amethyst due to its size and extremely clear clarity. Synthetic stones have all the same gem properties of natural gemstones, the only difference being that they have been grown in a laboratory.
The gold frame is fairly intricate with wonderful claws that are pretty and subtle, representing the period perfectly. Hanging from the bottom is a pretty and dainty cultured pearl. This pendant will come on a 18" 14kt gold fill chain.
