Pendant: Genuine Amethyst Wrapped with Gold Wire

Genuine rough-cut amethyst hand-wrapped with gold-filled wire on an 18 inch gold-filled chain. The pendant hangs approximately 1 1/4 inches from the chain. Necklace includes black gift box lined with white satin. Close-up picture is larger than actual size.

Gold-filled wire and chains are made of a hard metal with a layer of real gold. This is not to be confused with gold-plate. Gold-filled wire has a layer of gold 50 to 100,000 times thicker than gold-plate. High quality gold-filled jewelry is sometimes considered a suitable replacement for 14k jewelry as it is similar in luster and beauty and is more affordable.

Amethyst is a purple quartz whose name comes from ancient Greek, a methustos which means "not - to intoxicate." It was commonly believed that this stone could protect one from drunkenness. Obviously, it has no such power.
