Silver-Gilt Drop Amethyst Earrings with Hooks
These large lovely drop earrings are silver (tested as 900) with a yellow gold overlay. They have no marks. They are probably Middle-Eastern in origin. They are an estate piece and hard to date. The earrings are solid with fine workmanship and beautiful detail. The stones are bezel-set. The stones are clear, light purple amethysts with a European cut. The stones are around 2 carats each. These earrings are for pierced ears. They have shepherd's-hook wires with hinged guards that flip up and grip the wires. The guards are nice and tight. The earrings are in excellent original condition. The earrings each measure 1 1/4" X 3/4" X 1/4" thick. They drop 1 5/8" from the ear-holes. They weigh 7.7 grams (the pair).
