Ladies amethyst pendant crafted in fine sterling silver, this piece is being offered for sale with a generous discount in our Bargain Basement.
Amethyst is a variety of quartz whose colour is caused by impurities of iron but the depth of colour and specific shade is determined by the presence of manganese. It's not uncommon for the colour in a single amethyst crystal to be unevenly distributed and this characteristic along with a lack of distinctive colour due to the the amount of iron that's present can cause a stone to have a particularly distinctive appearance. This slightly bulbous amethyst cabochon is a perfect example and the very reason why we chose it for our collection. However whilst the pendant was being crafted the silver-work was not completed to the standard that we set for our gemstone pendants hence we're unable to sell this piece at full price. Were we to have the stone remounted it would inevitably become damaged hence we'd rather sell this piece at a reduced price instead of causing damage to what is a beautiful piece of amethyst.
It's important to note that the quality of the setting is not defective, the issue simply relates to the standard of workmanship and we're pretty sure it may not even have been noticed had we not said anything. With that said, should you not be entirely satisfied with this amethyst pendant it may be returned for a full refund (T&C's apply).
What makes this amethyst cabochon so fascinating is the fact that the purple colouration is not only incredibly subtle but also unevenly distributed. Being highly translucent means that when held up towards the light you can really see Mother Nature's handiwork in great detail which makes this piece all the more interesting.
We absolutely love this ladies amethyst pendant and for anyone who's not looking for perfection, we're pretty sure that you will too.
