(item # 103390)
These stunning drop earrings feature oval purple amethysts bezel set in white gold, suspended from small hoop findings by two links of a chain, which allows them to swing freely. They were created for a client from Carnation, WA, who already had the pair of amethysts and wanted us to make a beautiful setting for them. We worked with her in person in our Bellevue, WA showroom as well as online, and she quickly approved our models so we could move her project into production. Design Your Own Earrings
The centerpieces of this set are the two oval amethysts provided by the client. They’re large, totaling 13.07 carats combined, and they’re both bezel set in 14k white gold. The amethysts and the bezel setting surrounding them make up the entirety of the front of the earrings, and this keeps the beauty of the amethysts on full display.
Earring Design and Milgrain Accents
The baskets behind the central amethysts are made up of a pattern of bars and triangles that alternate around the sides of the stone. A similar pattern is found across the base of the baskets, providing a subtle unifying feature. Earrings
Each of the triangles on the sides holds three decorative beads of metal, and lines of milgrain run across both the top and bottom bar framing the bars and triangles. The beading adds a lovely vintage flair to the set, and it brings an understated character that supports the central amethysts.
The baskets attach to the hoops of the earrings through a small link on both pieces, and this type of connection allows the drop portion of the earrings to swing freely while the hoops remain in position. The hoops are slightly domed on top and relatively wide, providing a nice counterbalance to the large gemstones below. Their smooth silvery color adds contrast to the piece as well, further enhancing the lovely shine of the stones.
