I positively love these earrings that Lucia made. Often times the dark color of the amethyst can get lost on earrings----pretty off the ear, but not very noticeable on. In these earrings, she perfectly matched six, large 9mm diamond cut amethysts and set them in a sterling silver bezel that allows light to strike the stones from the back. They are 2 1/2 inches long and are connected with a beaded horseshoe shaped piece that allows them to dangle freely. Her work is impeccable and these earrings are outstanding!
