Antique 9ct Rose Gold Carved Natural Amethyst Heart Pendant Circa 1905

*Please note boxes are for display only unless otherwise stated*

Dating to the turn of the century to the early Edwardian era this large and quite spectacular carved Natural Amethyst heart brooch is simply divine.

Crafted from 9ct rose gold and set with a single large faceted Amethyst measuring 16.4 x 16.3 x 11.1mm or approximately 12cts.

The Amethyst is claw set to the centre of a double heart frame, and to the verso a curved pin with an extra pin which would have slipped into the clothing once attached to prevent such a heavy brooch tilting forward.  Original safety clasp is also present.

The Amethyst is of a medium to deep hue with rays of light pink/purple in cascading in some lights, this brooch is stunning and we believe could be relatively easily converted to a pendant with a bale by a jeweller familiar to working with antique jewellery.

Natural Amethyst
1 @ Approx 12cts
2.5 X 2.2cm
6.06 Grams
A very faint ‘9’ can be seen to outer frame
Tested as 9ct gold
Very very good antique condition.  Claws are all present and Amethyst is very securely set.  Amethyst has the tiniest minuscule marks seen under x10 loupe only and to the pavilion facet there is also some very very minor rubbing however this is quite insignificant.   

Pin and C clasp are original.  Pin MAY be gold filled as this was quite common for added strength, if so it is very good and rosy golden hue. Safety pin is 9ct and stamped as such.  Lovely brooch.
