From the side they look like crowns. The face of this brooch is simply bursting with masterful gold work-- crenellated detail work gives it almost an Etruscan feel. The biggest amethyst measures about 5mm in diameter and the smallest about 3mm.
I would estimate there is about. 94 carats in gem weight total based on measurements. The pin looks like it might be newer and it has a locking roll clasp. There are no marks on the piece but it tests as 14K. What a perfect gift for a February birthday girl!
