Retro Amethyst Brooch

Art Deco amethyst brooch. (J9398)

Retro Modern

A striking Retro brooch set with a light purple amethyst.  The amethyst is nicely framed by the elongated, flaring design of the brooch, while the gem's color plays beautifully against the soft glow of subtly textured gold.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1940.

Art Deco amethyst brooch. (J9398)

This brooch is finely crafted with a sturdy pin stem and safety clasp to secure the jewel on a hat, blouse or lapel.  The surfaces and edges of the back are smoothly polished and crisp.  With a little care this brooch will survive the next 100 years as beautifully as it survived the last.

The top of the clasp is stamped "14K" for the purity of the gold.  To the left of the gold mark is an unidentified maker's mark resembling a child's top lying on its side.
