Vibrant purple paste are mounted in dished gold settings. These beauties were originally part of a larger piece of jewelry, or made up one half of a flashy set of cuff links. The gold wires were added at some point to convert them into one spectacular pair of earrings.
10k gold (tests), "amethyst" paste.
Very good - converted from buttons or cufflinks or earrings.
5/8" measured from the top of the ear wires, 1/2 x 3/8" pendants.
