Deep-amethyst-glass stones in various shapes are set into rhodium-plated metal that forms a decorative centerpiece with pendant in this striking and elegant 1950s necklace by Bogoff. Small round glass stones in the same shade embellish the linked chain, which finishes with a diamanté-adorned fold-over clasp. The rich royal hue and detailed setting make this piece fit for a jewelry diva. I have other pieces by Bogoff that are even more diva-like — scroll down to see them.
