Vibrant Amethyst Stalactite Earrings
A fan favorite style is back! In earring form!
These gemstones are from a specific part of Brazil, where amethyst crystals grow on the stalactites of caves. The stalactites are cut into slices and then polished to create these stunning pieces. A hand fabricated setting has been made for this exceptional stone. Gemstone details on the chain.
Hand fabricated gold prong settings for each stalactite slice. Gemstone detail before ear wire. Because this is a natural stone, and not man made, no two slices will be exactly alike. These stones are sisters, but not twins.
One of a kind - these are already created and waiting to be taken home and made part of your story!
Metal: 14k Gold filled

AMETHYST has long said to be the bridge that connects the concrete with the divine. This stone is said to have such grounding properties, it could actually bring someone back to their senses from being drunk. Drunken behavior is often associated with a clouded mind and impulsive decisions. As the antidote to this, Amethyst is associated with crystal clear clarity, deep contemplation, and a better sense of control.
ABOUT 14k GOLD FILLED:
*Gold filled is the next level and is an amazing, quality alternative to solid gold
*It is actual layers of gold pressure bonded with other jeweler quality metals. While gold plating can eventually wear off, gold filled is required by law to contain 5% gold (plated is more like .5%) and it’s therefore extremely uncommon to wear through gold filled
*If you can wear gold jewelry without skin sensitivity, you can most likely wear gold filled!
*During the mid to late Victorian period, gold filled jewelry was very common and was manufactured in large numbers.
