What can I say about this amazing Amethyst Parure that the pictures don't? This regal & beautiful set is in its original fitted box and has all of its pieces! I would be quite happy to find any of these pieces on their own, but all together it's heart stopping. The necklace has graduated cut back collet set Amethysts with a pendant ring at the center front that can be folded up when you wear the Rivieré alone or swiveled down to accommodate the accompanying pendant. The earrings are set in the same manner as the necklace and pendant, they have replacement ear wires. All the stones are in excellent condition and the gold is 15k. Circa 1850-60. This set is definitely a treasure for generations past and yet to come.
Details.....The Rivieré measures 16" long, the center Amethyst measures .83" x .69" and the smallest stone in the necklace measures .34" x .26". The pendant measures .50" x 1.65". The earrings measure 1.25", not including ear wire, and .50" wide. This set is in Amazing condition for 150 years old and that can likely be contributed to the fact it is still in its original fitted box. You should always expect some wear on Vintage and Antique Jewels, we consider it a part of their charm.
