This necklace displays a large amethyst, gold, and silver opal vintage glass cabochon whose beauty represents the apex of Czech glassworkers’ craft.
Its makers combined canes of purple and gold glass with tiny pieces of silver foil over a lampworking flame and then hand-pressed the molten glass into the mold.
The glass cabochon hangs from a small, hand-carved, sew-through antique ocean pearl button. The pearl buttons are each one of a kind unique and so will not be identical to the image.
