Regular price $850.00 Sale

This antique piece was crafted sometime during the Art Deco design period (1920-1940). This Art Deco era necklace features intricate filigree, sculpted rose and green gold rosette accents, small pearls, and a marquise shaped purple amethyst;  all in an elegant drop style. The chain and settings are 10k white gold; this was common for depression era jewelry as many manufacturers were trying to make jewelry more affordable and accessible to the struggling American middle class. The necklace features six intricate filigree sections along with five sculpted green and rose gold rosettes. The necklace features one central marquise shaped purple amethyst. Purple Amethyst is a member of the quartz family and was a very important stone for many ancient civilizations around the globe. It was once revered as rare as diamonds, emeralds, sapphire, or rubies. This status waned after it was found in great abundance but it’s rich color has kept it a popular gemstone nonetheless. This antique necklace measures approximately 14 inches in the chain and 1 & 1/2 inches in the drop portion. The chain has an easy to use C clasp style closure.
