Pretty vintage bracelet with amethyst & diamonds, around 1985
Amethyst is the violet variety of quartz. The origin of the name from the Greek αμεθυστος (amethystos) - "counteracting intoxication" - expresses the ancient belief that a wearer of amethyst was immune to the intoxicating effects of wine. The present bracelet enchants with its beautiful play of colours. The double band of yellow gold holds an almond-shaped showpiece in the center that glows bright and white through an overlay of rhodium. In the centre, an amethyst of wonderful lavender colour captures the eye. A wreath of ten small octagonal-cut diamonds enriches the setting of the coloured stone with white reflections of light. A box clasp with a safety eyelet allows the pretty bracelet to be worn securely. It was made in the years around 1985 and is in very good condition. Now it is waiting for a new wearer who will grant it a place on her wrist.
