Vintage Sterling Silver Amethyst Leaf Brooch
A beautifully crafted brooch in sterling silver, the design features two leaves flanking a 9x7 mm. oval medium purple faceted amethyst set securely in a raised bezel. The stylized leaves are accented with curls of silver, the amethyst is accented with "raindrops" and yet more curled silver. The design origin is a hard one to call, so I am not attributing this piece. I will say it is simply stunning and well made. Unsigned and unmarked, it acid tests as sterling silver. The brooch measures 2 5/8 by 5/8".
