These earrings have a lightness and ease about them, a feminine quality that blends the warmth of 18k gold with the sparkling light purple tones of the amethyst stone. In addition to its aesthetic qualities, amethysts are often utilized as a protective shield, working to purify and cleanse one’s environment.
