Lovely pair of vintage yellow gold and amethyst earrings. Each earring features a pear shaped, bezel set amethyst on top, and a beautiful briolette cut amethyst at the bottom. They are articulated with a solid, thin bar of gold between the top and bottom, giving them wonderful movement when worn.
The earrings measure 43mm long and weigh 2.4 grams. The back of each earring is marked 10K, but the posts and clutches are marked 14K. I acid tested the earrings, and found them to be a little below 14K, and I am therefore selling them as 10K gold earrings. They are in excellent condition, and date to the 1980s.
