These Victorian 14ct Gold Amethyst earrings are a beautiful and luminous pair. Each earring is inlaid with a 4.80ct foiled Amethyst cabochon, crowned by 14ct Gold settings and complete with 18ct Gold hooks.
These antique earrings would be the perfect pop of colour to add to your wardrobe. The Amethyst cabochon is nestled within a 14ct Gold rope border, a clear stylistic hallmark of Etruscan revival influences. What a wonderful way to connect you with not just the Victorian period, but the ancient world!

VERY GOOD-GOOD: These Victorian 14ct Gold Amethyst earrings are in great condition for their age. There is some general but minute wear to one of the earrings, with a large ding on the back and some wear to the side. That being said, this is not noticeable when worn and does not detract from its wearability and beauty. Both of the Amethysts are secure within their settings and the charming foils are intact, emitting a soft yet luminous lilac glow.
