These stunning drop earrings feature cushion shaped checkerboard cut amethyst bezel set in white gold, accented with milgrain and other decorative beading on the filigree baskets behind the stones. The mix of features and elements in this set produce several layers of contrast, and there are many ways we can work with you to modify them and make them your own. Design Your Own Earrings
Cushion Cut Amethyst
The main focus of these earrings are the cushion cut amethysts that dominate the front surface of the earring bodies. Put together, they are 1.75 carats, and they’re oriented to hang with their rounded corners at the compass positions, giving them a dynamic yet delicate sensibility.
The surface of the amethysts exhibits a checkerboard pattern thanks to the specific placements of the facets in this cut. That angular arrangement contrasts subtly with the softly rounded square shape of the stone, which, in turn, is highlighted by the bezel setting surrounding it. Adding to that relationship is the color contrast between the rich purple of the stones and the silvery shine of the metal. Earrings
Milgrain and Filigree
A double row of milgrain beading runs along the margin of the bezel setting holding the amethysts in place. This detail continues onto the filigree baskets behind the stones, helping to highlight their intricate pattern while bringing a healthy dose of vintage flair to the set. Larger decorative beads are also integrated into the filigree for added texture and detailing.
When you’re ready to begin the custom design process, you can reach out to our team online, or you can visit our Bellevue, WA showroom in person. We’ll go over your options with you and integrate the choices you make into the unique design we develop in CAD.
For a set like this, some things to consider include using a different shape of stone or a different kind of setting to hold it. You might also think about eliminating the milgrain to create a more modern look, or you could switch to rose or yellow gold to take the classical themes even further.
