SOLD! Amethyst Apothecary Necklace

SOLD! Amethyst Apothecary Necklace


Connecting you to the land and history from where it came, the pottery shard featured in this necklace was discovered along the beach in Beaumaris. This deep purple shard features writing that suggests it was a Victorian Apothecary Ointment Pot. Many of the Victorian ointment pots purported to contain substances that the Victorians' were led to believe provided a cure for a number of illnesses and diseases that were around at the time. In some cases, the contents of the ointment pot offered no real substance other than alcohol or narcotics and it is quite clear that some manufacturers were unscrupulous in producing a product that was of no real benefit to the user.
A faceted amethyst gemstone connects the shard to the necklace, with an additional drop to finish off the extender - perfect to dangle down your back.
This sterling silver necklace was made to last. The soldering and hammered circle in this necklace provide you with a strong, quality necklace that isn't going to break from a slight tug. Including the extender, the necklace measures about 22 inches long.
