Art Deco amethyst and diamond pendant


Designs of the Art Deco period of the 1920's through to the 1940's are often easily characterised by wonderful angular lines and geometric shapes, and this can be seen here in the simply stunning Art Deco amethyst and diamond pendant from the 1930's.

Hand made in 18 carat yellow and white gold, the diamond set bail leads to that wonderful stepped design of one diamond leading to two that lead to three more. Typical of Art Deco jewellery, is the "shape in a shape" concept where there are the round early brilliant cut diamonds all set into a square setting. And to then to add even more charm and unique character to the diamonds, they are all millgrain set which is the very elegant crimping that can be seen around the setting. The diamonds come together to total 0.21 carats and lead to that magnificent amethyst at the bottom.

Measuring a very impressive 24.20 carats in weight, the colour of this amethyst is so perfect and the use of the yellow gold claws at each corner are the perfect match to showcase what a fabulous stone it is.

From the side of the pendant, this too has the most charming scroll work that shows how much time and attention went into making this all those years ago.

The pendant measures 16.2mm across by 41.8mm and will no doubt always be admired each and every time that it is worn.

When was the Art Deco era?

Broadly speaking the Art Deco era was from 1920 until 1940. There will be some people and publications that may state that it started after World War I in 1918, and lasted until 1950, but as there was no reigning monarch to dictate an actual start-finish time such as the Victorian era, the general concusses is from the 1920's through to the 1940's.
