Vintage Silver Heart Post Earrings with Amethyst Briolettes

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.
