A graceful antique lavaliere necklace artfully crafted in deeply yellow 14k gold with Etruscan style filigree and granulated decoration. Designed with a fleur-de-lis shaped bail and in three parts so the piece has slight movement. Both the rich color of the gold and this articulation beautifully emphasize the luminous color of the tear-drop shaped amethyst pendant; a gemstone believed to foster spiritual and emotional balance as well as aid in self-awareness and personal fulfillment in matters of both the heart and the psyche. Archeological discoveries of the early 19th century sparked a passionate interest in the ancient lost art gold-working techniques of ancient Etruscan jewelry that peaked in the mid-Victorian era, but continued to be popular through the early 20th century. It's possible this piece is of European origin, as the best of this type of 19th century filigree craftsmanship came out of Italy. The pendant measures approximately 1 5/8" long from the top of the ornately decorated bail to the bottom of the amethyst drop. Strung on an antique 18" 10k yellow gold cable chain. In excellent condition. The pendant is not marked but acid tests for 14k. The chain is marked 10k on the clasp ☆ More Necklaces and Pendants: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939717&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3 ☆ We are happy to offer layaway.
