Late 19th Century Amethyst & Diamond Festoon


Amethyst is the birthstone for February and the symbolic gemstone for the 6th wedding anniversary. The word "amethyst" roughly translates from Ancient Greek as "not drunk", as the Greeks believed it to be an antidote to inebriation. This lovely late Victorian festoon features an array of deep royal purple amethysts accented with a pendant old mine cut diamond.
