Haig’s of Rochester is thrilled to feature this rare, Rose de France Amethyst Edwardian Cameo Necklace.
The fine Amethyst is flawless and very gem-like with a slight lavender, amethystine color, typical of Rose de France stones. The nature of the stone makes the color appear more vibrant against a dark background, and more delicate against a light background. The hand engraved cameo image depicts a richly detailed Elizabethan woman in profile, against a deep stone with an unusually faceted back. The frame around the cameo is hand set in 14 K Yellow Gold, with hand constructed filigree in the chain details.
The necklace measures 24 inches long, and the stone is 30 mm wide by 39 mm long, and a thickness of 11 mm at the highest depth. Haig’s of Rochester purchased this piece from the private collection of an estate jewelry dealer.
Available for purchase at haigsofrochester.com with shipping worldwide, or locally in our store in historic Downtown Rochester, Michigan. Price: $2200.
