Sale price$300.00 AUD

Laybys welcome! Contact Us today to secure your dream piece.
Dating we believe to the early to mid 20th century this charming Amethyst ‘Easter Egg’ pendant/charm would be perfect for the collector of these iconic and symbolic little eggs.

“Around the 1890’s the tradition beckon amongst the affluent society to present a girl with an egg pendant every year before 
Easter.  The egg would then be worn on a necklace from Easter Sunday to Ascension Day.

The growing collection of eggs chronicled the lift of the girl until the day of her wedding.  Beyond the marriage a separate string on the necklace was attached and her partner would then present another effort every year documenting their new life tighter”.

This pretty Amethyst ‘egg’ measures 1.5cm x 1.2cm and is speckled with natural amethyst feather type inclusions throughout which catch the light and sparkle!
A simple (and original) Sterling silver small oval bale with stamps we cannot identify and another larger bale - new - which will accommodate a larger gauge chain.

Could this be the start of a new tradition in your family or perhaps a beautiful new addition to a current collection?
