During the Edwardian era, feminine motifs with delicate yet understated designs were considered en vogue. Natural pearls, amethysts, peridots, aquamarines, and other semi-precious stones were worn by affluent women to complement the trend of donning white silk and lace. This jewelry movement differed from the larger and dark colored jewels of the later Victorian era, it was a fresh and welcome change that breathed life back into fashion. This pendant would have been incredibly stylish for its time, sitting on the décolletage and accentuating the lower necklines of the 1910’s.
This elegant Edwardian pendant was handcrafted in England around 1910. It’s an antique piece crafted in 9 karat gold with an oval-cut amethyst at the center of a diamond-shaped motif decorated with 17 pearls. The amethyst measures 5 x 3.8 x 2.4 mm and weighs approximately .24 carats. Overall, this piece weighs 2.5 grams and measures 53 x 23.5 mm. This pendant bears no marks and has been acid tested.
