Silver hammered drops with these beautiful mauve gemstones
Bliss Collection. Product Code: BCE8
The story behind these earrings comes from the Greek Gold of intoxication. Dionysis was angered with the beautiful virgin Amethyst and released his tigers against her. She cried to the Godess Diana to save her who changed her into a white quartz gemstone. When he realised what he'd done Dionysis was so upset that he cried. His tears dripped into his wine goblet and when it spilled over onto the quartz, it became a glorious mauve colour stone - now known as amethyst.
Two rockchips of amethyst are set into the hand hammered discs in these drops. They catch the light perfectly - reflecting it back throughout the gemstone because of the way they are domed. A great brithday gift for a February girl, but an equally lovely present for her because she loves the look!
