About

Elements of the arts and crafts and art nouveau periods are found in this delicate and lacey gold, amethyst and natural pearl necklace. The geometry of the stones and the spokes of gold holding the small pearls are reminiscent of arts and crafts design. The curving links between the warm purple amethysts are an art nouveau influence. Both these periods coincided between 1895 and 1915. It is often the case that that two design influences appear in a piece of antique jewelry. The gold used is 15kt. The stones are emerald cut and set in open settings. Both the amethysts and pearls are beautifully matched.
