These cascading silver and amethyst faceted earrings are the perfect statement pair for any occasion. They feature three rose cut amethyst gemstones (named for the perceived resemblance to a rose bud) which has been a popular cut since the 16th century and adds a vintage feel to these gorgeous earrings. The stones selected for these earrings are delicate, pale lavender amethysts, which are set simply in a modern high-shine silver setting. Each pair of earrings has been handmade and carefully matched, while maintaining their unique individuality and the the organic shape that each gemstone was found with.
Amethyst, Birthstone for February, is one of the most beloved semi-precious stones, owing to its rich natural purple colour. Amethyst gets its purple tones from the traces of iron present in its structure, and varies naturally in hue, transparency and inclusions. It has been prized for centuries for its rich colour, which has long been associated with royalty and luxury. Amethyst is thought to enhance creativity, as well as promoting calmness, tranquility and sleep. Amethyst is a wonderfully calming and nurturing stone, as well as a powerful protective symbol, the perfect antidote for the stresses of today.
