A very pretty Edwardian necklace made of 15ct yellow gold and millegrain set with amethysts and seed pearls. The centre piece is of a finely worked open style with pearl set foliate motifs and articulated pearl set ‘arrowheads’ adjoining the original trace link chain. The amethysts are well matched and contrast perfectly with the pearls and yellow gold. The centre stone measures 5.95mm in diameter and the lower pear shaped amethyst measures 9.28 x 5.9mm; the necklace is 41cm (16″) in length.
Damon’s View: This necklace is in oustanding condition. Well balanced and very wearable, it is a perfect example of necklaces of this style allowing the delicately set amethysts and pearls to come to the fore.
