Vintage silver heart post earrings with amethyst briolettes. These post style earrings are more than 25 years old. They are not stamped with the .925 sterling silver symbol, so I cannot with certainty claim that they are. They have lovely filigree detail with purple Austrian crystals set within.
I have attached sterling silver chains and wire wrapped genuine amethyst to make them into one of a kind chandelier earrings. The teardrops of hyacinth gems are 14mm (1/2"). The other faceted cuts are onion (7mm or 1/4") and round (5mm). Twelve gemstones in all.
The dimensions are 3/4" x 2" (22mm x 5.1cm).
They remind me of a pair of Baroque era (17th century) earrings in the Victoria and Albert Museum jewelry collection in London.
