A pair of faceted amethyst gemstone teardrop briolettes, hand wrapped with sterling silver wire in an organic zen-like pattern. Each one is accented with a small silver spirals, and they dangle from sterling silver earring hooks.
The pair shown here is representative of the style and quality that you’ll receive, though each pair will have minor variances due to the fact that they’re handcrafted. They’re about 1″ long total, or about 3/4″ from the base of the earlobe.
The last photo shows these alongside a dime for scale. As you can see, I offer similar styles in chalcedony, Andean opal – and a few more gemstones to be added soon!
Folkloric properties of amethyst: the name is derived from the Greek word “ametusthos”, which means “not intoxicated”. Thus, it was believed to protect the wearer from drunkenness and addiction – as well as negativity and harm of all sorts. Other properties associated with this stone include the ability to soothe irritability and negative feelings, and to promote spiritual awareness.
