Story

The art of jewelry is exemplified by the superior mastery of the jewelers of the Georgian age. Like alchemists of old, the artisans of this era turned “simple” materials of amethyst and gold into a magnificent pair of earrings that were possibly part of a larger parure or demi-parure.

Superb amethysts of a deep royal purple have been faceted and foiled to develop even greater depth of color and refraction. Placed in hand crimped collet bezels, the gems have been set closed back with the familiar bulbous or sculptural reverse characteristic of the period. The mounts are of 15k yellow gold with modern 14k gold ear wires.
