31.5″ long Mexican silver and tumbled amethyst Chain Necklace

on Oct 4, 2018 in archived

I consider long chain necklaces the epitome of elegance and when they date in the 1950s like the rope-length Mexican example I am presenting here, resistance is … futile! Richly colored tumbled amethyst stones caged in sterling wire are strung together to form a river of purple around your neck. The color variation and the inclusions Mexican amethyst is known and loved for are impressive. A beautiful necklace that lends itself to be enjoyed alone but can easily be combined with similar pieces for a more luxurious look…


Size/Weight: 31 1/2″ long by approx. 1/2″ wide (some stones are wider, some are narrower); 56.6 grams
