For sale here is a RARE and incredible pair vintage 1950s sterling silver and hand-carved amethyst 'face' earrings by Felipe Martinez of Piedra Y Plata in Taxco Mexico. Exceptional carving of the amethyst 'face' combined with sleek modernist silver-work make this a very desirable pair! ( I also have the matching bracelet for sale here in my store.) The carved amethyst in each earring measure about 7/8" by 5/8" by 1/2" at thickest, and I'm estimating each are about 25-30 carats total weight of very high quality precious amethyst. The stones alone are worth more than the asking price for these earrings if you could even find such a carving for sale anymore! Each earring measures 1-1/4" by 1" and the pair weigh 18 grams total. Marked as shown, "Piedra Y Plata" on one earring, and "Sterling Mexico" on the other.Excellent vintage condition as shown in photos.
