This is a beautiful Faberge egg created in sterling silver and then gilded in 24 karat gold. It is then enameled with several layers of multicolored enamel. This technique of enameling is an extremely delicate and highly labor- intensive one involving hand application of translucent colored enamel and then firing it at very high temperatures. Each egg is enameled by hand with up to seven layers of enamel. This amethyst faceted crystal pendant with purple, gold and clear crystal accents is "fit for a queen!" It has the look of royalty and you'll feel like royalty wearing it! The amethyst crystal extends from under the draped design. Measuring 1 1/2" in length, it is simply MAGNIFICENT!
