How STUNNING are these dangle-drop earrings?! Elegance oozes, beauty abounds... everything about these gorgeous earrings makes us swoon!
Purple Amethyst - the color of Royalty. Diamonds - the most valuable objects of desire. Blue Sapphire - a traditional symbol of sincerity and faithfulness. Combined in this captivating pair of earrings, these long-admired gems outdo themselves.
Set in hallmarked 14kt white gold, the gems total a large 13ct of color, fire & beauty. The amethysts, so rich in fine velvety plum purple possess an uncommon bluish-red scintillation that bursts from within, especially in the larger oval-shaped drops. These are amazingly wonderful natural amethysts that bring a whole new level of respect to their somewhat often cast-aside 'semi-precious' stature. They glow like the finest rubies & emeralds we've seen. There are 2 round mixed cut amethysts measuring 6.75 x 6.65mm, totaling 2.12ct, with eye-clean clarity and 'good cuts'. The larger oval mixed-cut gems measure 13.00 x 9.65mm approximately each, adding an additional 9.22ct to the amethyst weight. They too are graded with good cuts and eye-clean clarity.
In the top 'stud' portion of these decorative ear pieces are the majority of the diamonds and the sapphires. The sapphires, 4 per earring for a total of 8, are square-cut, very much like French or Cross-cut gems. Each sapphire measures around 2.05-2.00mm, totaling 0.40ct, with eye-clean clarity and graded with medium dark, very slightly grayish, blue color.
The finishing touches of course come with all those round brilliant & single-cut natural diamonds - 70 diamonds in total - that amount to 1.25ct. Per earring, there are 6 single-cut diamonds set within the claw-like shaped drop that holds the larger amethyst, and 29 round brilliant cuts, the largest being bezel-set above each 'claw'. Beautifully white within their 14kt white gold settings, the diamonds are sparkling and clean to the naked eye, grading from Si2-I2 clarity (inclusions not visible) and fine G-I color.
All the gems are surrounded by a delicate millegrained finish, all either bead, bezel or claw set within the gold.
Size-wise, the earrings from top stud to dangle hang approximately 40mm each, or 1.57 inches. The stud portion measures N-S & E-W just about 17mm all-round, or 0.70 inches. The remaining length (nearly 0.90 inch) comes in the dangle portion of each earring. Together, the earrings weigh 7.50 grams.
Truly a breathtaking pair of fine earrings, these dazzlers will shine beyond the stars at your next soiree or gala event.
