Splendid play of colours
Vintage heavy gold bracelet with amethysts, around 1970
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. This bracelet of high-carat yellow gold enchants with the play of colours of seven beautiful first-quality amethysts. The stones feature an oval cabochon cut and are of a clear, vivid purple colour. Openwork chains of twisted gold links enclose the oval cabochons. Movably mounted, the links increase in size toward the center. A secure box clasp with a safety eyelet allows the heavy bracelet to be worn securely. The bracelet was made around 1970 and is in very good condition. It is now waiting for a new wearer who will grant it a place on her wrist.
