This is a beautifully example of the intricate jewellery from the Victorian period. The light purple amethyst is a cushion shape, with depth at the back to bring out the colour and a flat surface which reveals the complex carved intaglio engraving of a classical male head profile. The amethyst is claw set in 9ct Yellow Gold, and our goldsmith has cleaned and polished the pendant to recondition the gold to its original shine. The pendant measures 27mm x 15mm x 8mm and weighs 3.1 grams and tests as 9ct gold, although no markings are present.
