14K Modern Amethyst Hinged Drop Earrings
This is a striking pair of 1970s amethyst and 14k gold hinged drop earring. They have clean, simple lines giving a sense of control and confidence. The amethyst stones are fully exposed, allowing light to penetrate from front to back. This activates and changes the tone of purple with new light. There are two hinges that allow for some nice movement when worn too.
The cabochon oval is 9.8 mm by 11.2 mm and the total carat weight for each stone is 5.5. From top to bottom, each earring measures about 1.5” hitting a nice spot below the ear. Together the earrings weigh 8.2 grams. While they are unmarked, I have acid tested them be 14k gold.
These earrings are original in design and flare and would make an unforgettable gift or fantastic addition to your jewelry collection.
