An impressive Edwardian pendant featuring a large cabochon amethyst and diamonds set in platinum. The amethyst is pierced and set with a .25ct H/SI1 diamond and surrounded by a halo of small old European cut and rose cut diamonds. The bail is similarly set with rose cut diamonds. The pendant has a very dramatic appeal, yet the openness of the setting keeps it from being overpowering. Tested and guaranteed platinum (chain is silver).
Origin: America, ca. 1915. Dimensions: 1-3/8” diameter (excluding bail). Weight: 13.7 gr. Approximate Total Gemstone Weight: amethyst, 32.75 cts; diamond, 1.25 cts.
