Victorian Carved Amethyst and Seed Pearl Dangle Earrings
ABOUT THESE EARRINGS
Think purple! A matched pair of unusual gemstones (to say the least): briolette shaped cabochon amethysts, hand carved with a grid like pattern (possibly to resemble grape bunches) swing and sway and glisten and glow below seed pearl-set florets, accented with dancing pearl-tipped fringe in these distinctively delightful late-Victorian/Edwardian era ear bobs hand fabricated in 18K yellow gold - circa 1900. Just over 1 inch, they drop just shy of an inch-and-a-half.
