We have here, for your consideration, an adorable pair of vintage earrings made of 14 karat yellow gold and containing amethyst gemstones.
The earrings are not hallmarked but have been carefully acid tested at 14 karat. The ear clutches are hallmarked 10 karat, and possibly not the originals.
The earrings are heart shaped, and each earring contains three approximately 3mm size amethysts. The stones are a light purple color. The posts are screw back style, which I feel dates the piece to the 1940's or earlier. I note that there is a slight difference in the length of the two earring posts and a minuscule difference in the shape of the two hearts and stem mountings, so I would surmise that the set was hand crafted. The earrings weigh 4.1 grams and measure 1/2" by 1/2". They are in fine vintage condition.
