Regular price $1,836.00
Presented is a fabulous pair of amethyst and gold earrings. These are modern designer earrings, though they are done in emulation of old Etruscan revival style jewelry. Each earring is set with a round cut amethyst in rich royal purple. The gold setting is done in a sort of stylized petaled flower design, with intricate beaded work. The earrings have post with omega style attached backs, for pierced ears. The earrings are in good overall condition. There is some missing beaded work, but this is not noticeable without very close examination. The amethysts are securely set. There are no breaks and no repairs. The earrings are signed on the backs with 'GILLARDIN' as well as 22/18k. The earrings themselves are 18 karat gold with a 22 karat gold wash. The clip backs are stamped 14k. Each earring is approximately 7/8 of an inch in diameter.
The total weight for this pair of earrings is 15.8 grams.
