Victorian Etruscan Style Amethyst 18ct Gold Necklace



An early Victorian Etruscan style necklace, circa 1840. At this time there was a fashion for all things Greek or Roman (as in this case). Items of jewellery were made to sell to fans of The Grand Tour who made their way slowly around Europe admiring the Classical temples and sites. This necklace has a faceted amethyst drop and two natural split pearls.
