Timeless and classy these 14ct gold Victorian drop earrings are set with oval cut amethysts that radiate pale lilac and deep purple colour hues. The beautifully faceted stones are natural, they measure a full 2 carats each and they are open backed which adds a lovely sparkle.
The amethysts are set into very pretty buttery gold filigree settings with scroll and gold bead work accents giving a lovely flower effect. The earrings are stationary (they don't move) and have heavy gauge shepards hooks at the back that safely lock into place with a c-clasp at the bottom.
A gorgeous and regal pair of super quality antique earrings. They are effortlessly wearable and robust, perfect for the February birthday girl or if Royal purple is your colour!
