Bellarri "Baroness" 18K Pink Gold, Multi-Strand Amethyst Necklace with Amethyst, Rhodolite & Diamond Clasp

We recently had the black onyx version of this necklace in stock, and now we're pleased to offer the amethyst colorway. And we have the matching bracelet as well - click here to visit our Sets page and see the combination with bundle savings.

This necklace features 10 strands of natural, earth-mined amethyst beads that come together at an openable solid 18K pink gold clasp. The clasp is released by pressing the little button with the round natural .05ct rhodolite garnet displayed at the center. The clasp itself holds a huge 29.65 carat faceted natural amethyst and is ringed with 24 points / .24ct of natural white diamonds.

Note the color of the amethyst - it's a lighter color, with beautiful hues of purple and lavender. This is entirely by design, hence the style code actually including the 'LAA' gemstone designation signifying "Light Amethyst". Knowing this large clasp stone would be resting against your chest, inhibiting light pass-through, Bellarri she didn't want a darker stone to be too opaque and seem lifeless. So she used a lighter-hued stone so that even against your body you'd get beautiful light refraction and clarity, not to mention good contrast against the bead strands.

That 29.65 carat weight is just for the clasp amethyst alone - Bellarri doesn't calculate carat weights for her bead strands. The clasp measures 1.45" x .95" and features double safety catches on both sides. The amethyst beads measure between 1-2mm in diameter.

The necklace has a total physical length of 34" so it can be worn as a long single-layer necklace draped down your front. Or you can double it up, as we show in most of the photos, and it becomes a choker with wearable range of about 15" up to 16". Because it can be twisted, it can be shortened somewhat the more you twist it, hence the 1" of play in the wearable size.

It's not heavy - it weighs only about 3 1/2 ounces - so despite its large presentation it isn't going to feel onerous on your neck. Retail was almost $8500, but we're offering it for $2795, and there's even more savings when you combine it with the matching bracelet.
