Early 20th C. Amethyst Pendant Necklace
With a nod toward the timeless girandole form, this early 20th century silver pendant prominently presents natural amethysts in a marvelous light. A central medallion with a horizontal profile is set with a large and luxurious oval faceted amethyst with a twisted wire bezel and a surround of silver work reminiscent of the amazing cannetille work of the Georgian era.
Suspended is a trio of faceted amethyst set pendant drops embellished with similar bezels with corded silver work. The ornate hand-made chain is composed of fancy links with a three point attachment to the pendant. This “double chain” provides a beautiful sense of symmetry and balance for the piece.
Measurements: Pendant portion is 2-3/4 inches (7 cm) in total length. Center amethyst plaque is 1-3/16 inches (3 cm) in length by 1-1/2 inches (3.6 cm) in width. Length of chain when worn is 17 inches (43.5 cm). Weight of 32.0 grams (20.6 dwt).
