We’ve learned that amethysts, the jewel of royalty is also known for its miraculous powers And what a powerful beauty this one is!
There are five, 5mm x 4mm deep colored amethysts that create the petals of a delicate flower. This is almost two cwts of rich, rich purple. And at the center, is of course, a pearl. The stones are individually hand set and framed in a 14k yellow and green gold mounting of textured leaves.
The pin has a “C” clasp that extends beyond the pin body so we know it is an earlier Victorian piece, probably 1880-1890’s.
The pin is 7/8” in diameter. It is in excellent vintage condition and guaranteed to be of the period.
