The simplest things are often the best, and that's certainly true of these fine 18ct Gold antique Amethyst drop earrings. Made during the Victorian era, circa 1890, they're beautiful, finely crafted and feel magnificent on!

The hooks are original and made from rosy 18ct Yellow Gold that perfectly match the handsome collet settings and the earrings themselves from natural Amethyst. 

The Amethysts are set "a jour" so the light flows through them freely.. each facet radiating a hue of lavender, violet and occasionally rose-pink!

These antique Amethyst earrings are some of the most beautiful earrings we've ever had the pleasure of having on our collection, and a truly rare prize to covet.

They'd make a superb romantic gift or a versatile addition to your jewellery box.
