Italy does many fabulous things, including jewels, so when I was there recently I was very impressed with their quality amethyst which they often mixed with peridot and blue topaz. On my return I was fortunate to obtain some beautiful quality amethyst and felt I just had to mix it with some peridot …. Italian style!
As the amethyst isn’t huge (but it isn’t tiny at 8mm either), I made it a long necklace that can be doubled for that chunky look if you want to wear it with a collared shirt for example but can wear it for a long and lean look if you prefer. The bright green peridot creates a wonderful contrast and interest without being overwhelming.
