Cambridge, United KingdomLive Auction
Description: An amethyst rivière necklace and matched earpendant suite, the necklace with twenty-seven vertically mounted graduated oval cut amethysts, claw set with short chain connections, to a similarly set box clasp, safety chain, length 44cm; the earpendants with similar amethysts collet set on later wire hooks, length of drops 1.2cm (2)
The amethysts in the necklace are quite light in colour, but well-matched; the stones are internaly clean but some have mildly abraded facet edges; over the length of the necklace there are about half a dozen claws lacking; the clasp is sound. The earrings are more modern, the amethysts slightly more intense in colour, and all in good order.
