Lovely and unusual color amethyst paste 15k poissard "fishwife" hoop earrings, aptly named for the wives of fisherman who used to sell them at market while their husbands were at sea- aka- "fishwives". The amethyst forms a floral cluster with a single white paste gemstone in the center. The earrings enter from the back of the earlobe and hook securely in the front.
