Petite and charming, these antique 15 karat gold and amethyst earrings are circa 1880. They are designed with two pale faceted amethyst that are wrapped in a bouquet of gold ribbon. The very feminine, pale amethysts complement almost any piece of jewelry. The gold work is cannetille and hand etching. The composition is typically Victorian and very elegant. They are in excellent condition with an original, rich patina.
They measure 1 3/8 inches long X slightly less than 3/4 inches across the bottom. They are light on the ears, and the ultimate, feminine earring. Easy to wear day or evening.
