This classy brooch highlights a large amethyst with a row of seed pearls, surrounded by an enameled key pattern. Marked 14k, and signed by the Riker Bros. of Newark, NJ, it measures 1-3/16” x 13/16” and weighs 8.0g. It is in excellent condition, overall, but with a very small ding to the upper left edge, and very tiny pitting in the enamel, which isn’t visible without a loupe. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. Thanks! Shipping, handling & insurance within the USA included.
AMETHYSTS are the birthstone for February. They were thought to aid in keeping a clear mind, bringing calmness and clarity. Also good dreams (put one under your pillow) and a cure for headache (rub it across your forehead).
