Antique Etruscan Revival Amethyst Cabochon 18k Yellow Gold Dangle Earrings Estate 1800's Shield - image 1 of 16

Here’s an exquisite antique pair of amethyst cabochon dangle earrings set in 18k yellow gold!

These lovely earrings feature a pair of pristine bezel-set purple amethysts. The amethysts are large, with a combined total carat weight of approximately 10.91 Ct. The amethysts are held in open-backed settings which help illuminate the stones. The earrings are shield-shaped with intricate gold surface decorations which are absolutely perfect, and their aesthetic is Victorian Etruscan Revival.

The earrings are worn in pierced ears by shepherd's crook gold wires; it's possible the shepherd's crook hooks replace an original, different style of hook. The hooks are long for added security.

These beautiful gold earrings each have 18K hand engraved on their reverse and acid testing confirms the gold is 18k. We believe these estate earrings date to the 1800's, c1860-1880.

As with all our items this will ship in an elegant box, ready for presenting as a gift or keeping safe as a treasured heirloom.
