EXCELLENT: This 15ct Gold Amethyst riviere necklace is in exquisite condition. Each of the 16 large Amethyst gemstones have been faceted to perfection which allows the light to shine through every angle. The gemstones have been kept in superb condition over their lifetime with only the smallest fleabite nicks to a couple of the back faceted points. They are extremely minute and can't be noticed when worn at all. It's really remarkable that such large gemstones are pretty much perfect when they are this old!
The 15ct Gold chain links are well connected and a lovely colour tone next to the purple Amethyst. The blot ring is in wonderful working order ready to be worn and flaunted for the whole world to see it's stunning beauty!
