This listing is for the item only. The Art Deco era is famous for being the "Gatsby" or "Roaring Twenties" era. A lot of gorgeous and timeless designs in jewelry came out of this period.
Jewelry from this period was most often crafted between 1920 and 1940. Art Deco jewelry sometimes featured white gold or platinum, geometric designs, European cut diamonds, filigree, and calibre cut stones that are specially cut to fit the design of the piece.
During the Art Deco period jewelers often made jewelry upon custom order, this would usually take weeks to months to completely craft by hand. Gold filled jewelry consists of an outer solid gold layer over a metal base, and 5% of its weight should be derived from gold.
This solid layer of gold is laid over a base of sterling silver or some other kind of metal to produce a high-quality gold look. Amethysts are a semi-precious variety of quartz that are valued for their varying shades of translucent purple hues. The purple color is derived from iron and other trace element deposits. Throughout antiquity, amethysts were used in religious and royal jewelry, and were considered as valuable as rubies, emeralds, and even sapphires.
