Salamander dangle screw back earrings with amethyst pastes and simulated pearls. The salamanders are curled around the side of a filigreed half dome that is also embellished with a carved amethyst paste scarab and a simulated pearl. The top part of the earrings holds a round amethyst paste cabochon. The backs of the half domes are finished with a pretty, scalloped filigree design.

These earrings are most likely French, as the salamander is commonly depicted in French jewelry and other decorative arts. It was the symbol of King Francis I; his hunting lodge, the Château de Chambord, which he built in the 1500's, contains more than 300 depictions of this animal.

The earrings are 1 and 3/8 inches high and 11/16 inches wide. The dangle component is 7/16 inches deep. The earrings weigh a total 15.1 grams. They are made from a gold tone metal--maybe brass.

Very good condition.
