GOOD: This Victorian Amethyst Paste rivière necklace is in great condition. The gilded Silver holds all the Amethyst Paste in wonderfully, with a strong and secure original clasp. The Amethyst Paste shows signs of light wear with a few scratches towards the back, hardly noticeable to the naked eye, which almost look like natural inclusions which is rather sweet and only add to the charm of this historical necklace! What an absolute stunner of an antique necklace, we can't wait for you to try her on for all to admire!
