This is an Artisan designed and handcrafted large amethyst cabochon pendant, with wire wrapped sterling silver. The oval polished amethyst stone has a unique blend of lilac purple shades, with the sterling silver showcasing the natural beauty of the colors within the amethyst. This interesting and creative jewelry piece was handmade by a Missouri artist who put extreme thought and care into the design and creation of this special one-of-a-kind piece.
The silver bale on top will accommodate a necklace chain (see photo with ruler for bale measurement). NO chain is included with this pendant. The pendant measures about 1 7/8 inches in length, including the sterling silver bale, and is about 1 1/2 inches across the widest part, including the delicate curled outstretched silver wires. It comes with a gold color cardboard gift box.
There are no artist signature marks or sterling silver marks on this piece. I see a few normal artist tool marks or tiny scratches (see photos) on the back sterling wires.
This is an exceptional oval amethyst pendant, framed within wonderfully detailed wire wrapped sterling silver. Amethyst is a purple or violet form of transparent quartz used as a semi-precious gemstone, and is the birthstone for February. This lovely artist made pendant would make a great addition to your jewelry wardrobe, or a fantastic gift for a special person!
