Here is a lovely Art Nouveau lavaliere, made of 9 ct gold and set with amethysts [the smaller stones] and a garnet/glass doublet. [Garnet/glass doublets were a common substitution in the Victorian age, when amethyst was one of the most valuable gemstones. Making them was often a family affair, done in the evenings around the kitchen table.] The pendant is 2" x 1", and is on a 16" [modern] 14 k gold chain. The pendant itself is circa 1900.
