Art Nouveau 14kt Amethyst Chain Necklace 52"
A gorgeous and unusual amethyst chain necklace from the Art Nouveau (ca1900) era! Crafted in 14kt yellow gold, this long, flowing necklace is comprised of gorgeous amethyst stones, separated by sections of delicate chain. The vibrant purple gemstones are bezel set and rest in a smooth eyeglass setting, allowing the light to pass through and catch the facets beautifully with every turn. Its slip-on style can be worn long or easily doubled, providing the wearer with plenty of options. Adding further versatility to the design, is a watch swivel clasp (stamped with a "14" gold purity mark) hanging from the center of the chain, perfect for adding a favorite pendant or locket. Beautiful, feminine, and very versatile, it would make a wonderful piece to wear everyday or for special occasions!

Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold chain and all of the amethyst stones are intact and securely set. The watch swivel clasp is secure and in good working condition.
