This beautiful rich purple amethyst is set off to perfection in a circular domed setting, which has been textured by a process known as reticulation. This is where heat is applied to the metal to cause the outer skin of the silver to become liquid but removed before the whole piece reaches the same temperature. As it cools, it forms beautiful ripples that, when polished, catch the light and reflect the beauty of the stone.
Approx 17mm in diameter, the pendant is supplied with an 18" fine rope chain and comes gift boxed
