Bezel Set Amethyst in Filigree Necklace


Bezel Set Amethyst in Filigree Necklace

$115.00 CAD

Oxidized silver with faceted amethyst and prong-set marcasite.

Uruguay and Brazil are large world producers of amethyst.

Marcasite became popular in the early 1900’s when diamonds were a luxury people couldn’t afford anymore.

Prong setting uses four metal projections called prongs in the placement of each marcasite.  This type of setting allows light to strike the marcasite from more angles, increasing its brilliance.

Oxidation is a surface treatment applied to the silver which gives the jewellery its retro quality.
