The color of grape juice, this amethyst is absolutely mouth watering! It is large and pear shaped, measuring 18x12mm and weighing 17.25 carats. It is set in an entirely hand made fillegree setting, strung with tiny amethyst beads and pearls, reminiscent of Victorian jewelry. Although this is a contemporary piece, this type of craftsmanship is seldom seen today.
Amethyst is the birthstone for February and in Greek mythology, it was thought to be tied to Bacchus. Wearing amethyst was thought to prevent drunkenness!!
