Fred Davis' luxe Art Deco Chevron design is the stuff of legends, set here with eye-popping amethyst cabochons. One stone forms part of the clasp on the sleek bracelet; another, bracketed by sterling scrolls echoing the motif on the bracelet's clasp, serves as the necklace's stunning focal point. Quintessential Mexican amethyst quartz gems carry streaked and swirling cloudlike inclusions glimmering with subtle mystery against deep royal purple. This set's heroic proportions, classic elegance and lavishly sized gemstones cast a mythic, Helen of Troy aura on the wearer. Highly sought by serious collectors, this legendary design will launch gasps from a thousand lips!
