VERY GOOD: These antique 9ct Gold Amethyst briollette earrings are in very good condition throughout. Highly faceted, her Amethysts possess wonderful reflective qualities. When looking through a jeweller's loupe at 10x magnification, you can see that their facets have some wear, most notably around the middle sections. One Amethyst has an inclusion to the top, a testament to the hard work of mother nature to form such a beautiful gem. The Amethysts have retained a fabulous pale orchid hue, which wonderfully compliments their radiant 9ct Gold hooks.
