NEW! Small AMETHYST (AQUARIUS) CLUSTERS in Small SILVER TEARDROP Earrings
As part of my effort to incorporate birthstones into my collections, here is a lovely example from my new "AMETHYST / AQUARIUS" collection!
We contoured our Forged Sterling Silver hoops into these teardrop shapes and then carefully wire-wrapped the graduated Amethyst crystals into sweet, suspended clusters that gently sway independently of each other and glisten in the light as you move around.
Amethyst is a variety of quartz, with a vitreous or glassy luster. It typically comes in shades of violet and purple. The spiritual meaning of Amethyst is groundedness, tranquility, and calm. The literal meaning of Amethyst is “not intoxicated” – its name translates from the Greek word améthystos. To this ancient, wise culture, the Amethyst crystal was of the utmost importance, and the myth associated with it still lives on inside it to this day.
2” long including earwires. Silver Teardrops are 1 1/8" wide at their widest, and the center Amethyst crystals are about 3/4" long.
*Due to the nature of natural Amethyst, the beautiful pair you'll receive may be slightly different than the one pictured.
