Circa the Victorian era, this elongated oval amethyst makes for a graceful charm or pendant. Seed pearls set into flowers bisect the center gemstone, adding to the femininity of the piece. The flowers and the bezel setting of the amethyst are 14k gold. A silver surround ties the piece together and compliments the gold.
Part of Kirsten’s Corner Signature Collection, this piece was recently converted from a stickpin into a pendant—preserving its timelessness but also allowing it to be worn as a fashionable charm. In the early and mid 1800s, it was customary for upper class men to wear stickpins to secure their ties and cravats. Pins were also worn on the lapels of coats, and incorporated into hats. Eventually, women took interest in wearing stickpins and began using them on scarves. The style and function of these items continued to evolve over time.
The pendant is approximately 1” x 1/2”, not including the 4 x 6 mm oval 14k gold bail. It weighs 1.83 grams.
