This necklace is a fine example from the Art nouveau period, beautifully made in gold with decorative edges and scrolls in the form of an abstract heart.  Taking centre stage is a stunning oval 8.5 x 7mm Amethyst, mounted in a collet setting, framed in a beautiful gold surround and complimented with four tiny seed pearls.

The centre piece is connected with two lengths of chain to a 5mm Amethyst again connected to a split chain with barrel clasp fitting. Complete with a matching 4.5mm Amethyst "en tremblant" drop.

Pearl is the traditional birthstone for June.
