Each of these earrings is built around a round checkerboard cut amethyst that’s bezel set in 14k rose gold. The two stones together total 1.50 carats, and their tantalizing purple color contrasts beautifully with the pinkish glow of the surrounding metal. The pattern of facets across the tops of the stones is what creates their distinctive checkerboard appearance, and this adds to their dynamic visual appeal, as it results in a pattern of light and dark areas that changes continuously based on the angle the stones are viewed from.
Filigree and Milgrain
While the amethysts dominate the fronts of the earrings, the backs of the stones are enclosed by intricate filigree baskets that add substantially to the vintage feel of the set. These baskets are lined with milgrain beading to help highlight their elegant pattern, and larger decorative beads also fill spaces within the filigree to add another layer of texture and complexity to the design. Tying all of this together is the line of milgrain beading that runs around the top surface of the bezel setting holding the amethysts. Earrings
When you’re customizing a set like this, you have several options to consider. For instance, you may want to adjust the color dynamic by choosing yellow or white gold rather than the rose gold used here. You could also experiment with a different shape for the center stones, as using an oval, pear or cushion shape could all bring a different feel to the set while keeping most of the general framework of the design intact.
