Story

Jewelry from the earlier decades of the 19th century embodied more color as well as displaying a tendency toward a more ornate and rich design. Shapes ran the gamut from rectangular to round to oval. Stones, set closed back, were typically foiled to intensify their color and increase the perceived depth.

A large and lovely oval shaped faceted amethyst with a broad table has been placed in a mount of 9k rose gold and positioned within a crimped collet setting for a fine, finished appearance. A surround of lustrous and radiant natural half pearls bestows a crimped frame for the regal amethyst of purple with rose colored flashes. The shank has some delicate pattern work. Priced exceedingly kindly given its small condition issues to the reverse.
