Victorian Amethyst and Gold Gilded Brass Choker Necklace

Click on a thumbnail image to see enlarged images.

A Victorian choker created with sparkling faceted amethyst glass beads. The large beads are terminated at each end with gold gilded brass filigree caps. The central medallion is gold gilded brass that has been stamped with an ornate pattern of scallops and feathers. The rhinestones at top, bottom and sides of the medallion are pale amethyst with a foil backing. Each sparkles brightly. The central stone is a marquise cut piece of amethyst glass. All stones are bezel set. The necklace closes with a spring ring clasp that is in excellent working condition. The necklace is in Extremely Fine condition with no damage, repairs or replaced parts. The stones on the medallion are free of chips, cracks or scratches. The amethyst glass beads are also in remarkable condition. A few very tiny fleabites on the large beads but so small that they are not easily visible without the assistance of a loupe. The bezel cup that holds the central stone has a rough top edge. This may be due to wear or may have occurred when the stone was set. 16 inches long. Hallmarked but illegible. The hallmark was stamped into the gold at the very edge of the opening for the central stone and not stamped low enough. The top portion of the hallmark is missing. Gift boxed in a velvet jewelry box. (The box is not antique or vintage.)
