Pearl & Amethyst necklace.
Beautiful graduating, perfectly round white pearls, flowing from 7mm then 5mm & 4mm,
The finest 17mm Amethyst briolettes have an amazing intensity of colour perfectly balanced with brightness. Surprisingly Amethyst was as expensive as ruby & emerald until the 19th Century, when Brazil’s large deposits were discovered. Markedly Amethystos means “not drunk” in ancient Greek. Today it’s the most valued quartz variety.
