These early 20th century Art Nouveau amethyst long line earrings sensually swing from the wearer’s lobes, elegantly dancing in candlelight or sunshine. Likely American in origin but Biedermeier in style, the pair enjoys a beautiful energetic symmetry featuring an oval amethyst up top and an elongated teardrop at the bottom, each fitted with a stunning gold foliate setting as central pearl bridges these two earring portions together. I am so excited to place these fantastic earrings into her forever home.
