Love, love, love these fabulous natural amethyst & cultured pearl earrings. What stunning color of the amethysts, what huge stones they are! The gorgeous setting of the beautiful amethysts accented by eight natural cultured pearls make these earrings very special. Photos just don't do them justice. They sparkle, they sizzle when turned to and from the light......the amethysts are spectacular! If you are a February baby, and amethysts are your birthstone, these may be your earrings to enjoy for many years to come!
There are two natural double prong set cushion cut amethysts which measure 10.5 x 10.5mm, and weigh approximately 16 carats. Circa 1960's, the amethysts have medium saturation, have a deep purplish pink color with an excellent cut. There are eight cultured pearls set below each amethyst, which are 6 mm. The earrings are pierced with an omega back for extra security. The earrings are set in a 14K yellow gold setting, meaning they have 58.3% fineness of pure gold. The earrings measure 15/16ths of an inch from top to bottom and 5/8ths of an inch from east to west. The total piece weighs 11.16 grams. These are fabulous earrings!
