Precious garland

Delicate vintage necklace of amethysts & pearls, around 2010

The citrine, agate, jasper, amethyst and onyx - for the chemist, all these gemstones are quite uniform quartz. However, they are clearly distinguished by their color. The color spectrum of amethyst begins with the most delicate shades of lilac and extends to a rich violet like the sky at the most beautiful sunset. Here now 27 amethysts are gathered to a fine necklace. The stones are drop-cut and spaced on a necklace of fine pearls so that it looks like a garland of precious stones. With a length of 45.5 cm, the necklace nestles close to the neck. Necklaces of this kind were popular in the early years of the 20th century. They were always decorated with pastel-coloured stones: In this way they harmonized with the new fashion, whose colors were also borrowed from a particularly delicate spectrum. This example emerged from this tradition, probably in Germany, in recent years. We discovered it in Berlin.
