Art Deco Amethyst Filigree Necklace
ABOUT THIS NECKLACE
Deceptively simple, this Jazz Age jewel is full of delightful details. A cool, clear purple 9.00-carat scissor-cut (exotic, right?) amethyst, set off by a fancy filigree frame decorated with curlicue vines and sweet little orange blossoms, connects to its 17 1/2-inch chain via a filigree bail. A low-key Depression-era delight. Die-struck in 10K white gold.
