Pastel colors dominated fashion in the first decade of the young 20th century. Fashion houses such as the House of Worth designed dresses in pastel colors, embroidered with floral ornaments and accented with delicate tulle panels. The lines were flowing and soft, the colors all borrowed from a decidedly delicate spectrum. While festive white jewelry was worn in the evening, more informal materials in pastel colors were used during the day: lilac amethysts, light green peridots, iridescent opals and aqua blue aquamarines. This pendant is an example of elegant day jewelry from the period. It was created in Edwardian Britain in the early years of the 20th century. Two violet amethysts form the colorful focal point of this graceful creation. Fine curves and leaf ornaments form an airy composition. Small pearls are set on them and add a velvety shimmer. This creates a magnificent yet light impression that is in keeping with the fashion of the time. The pendant, which came to us from London, is in very good condition. We have added a fine gold chain to it.
