Up until the 18th century, the Amethyst was considered to be amongst the cardinal gems, along side diamond, sapphire, ruby and emerald. For a time it's wear was reserved only for royalty and the rich purple color has long been associated with nobility. This fantastic pendant boasts a rich purple stone with a deep velvety feel, it makes you understand why Royalty used to claim this most regal of stone all to itself!
Hand crafted in 9 karat gold with a 15 karat bale, this lovely pendant would have taken a skilled jeweler quite a while to make, the gorgeous scalloped frame and beautifully matched and set pearls are simply inspired. The pendant is set with 42 creamy half pearls with a pinkish undertone in the nacre. The amethyst is an oval faceted cut which measures 15.5 mm x 11 mm x 9 mm deep and weighs approximately 8.13 carats. Overall the pendant is 33 mm long including the bale, 21 mm wide at the widest point and 9 mm deep and weighs 4.3 grams. It is not hallmarked but has been carefully acid tested to verify content.
This is a fantastically regal pendant which would look equally wonderful on a chain or simple black cord and could be worn with anything from blue-jeans to ball-gowns!

It was all in a glance, the way she turned her head when she thought she heard her name across the room. Her blue eyes gazed around, searching. The silver abalone pendant around her neck reflected light from the bright chandelier, just for a moment, as she shifted. The abalone took on a life of its own, shimmering from the inside. She turned back to her conversation, as if nothing had happened.
