Sparkle and shine meet beauty and elegance in these stunning earrings. Delicate sterling silver scrollwork surrounds a central amethyst gemstone in a design inspired by an antique sleeve button in the collections of Colonial Williamsburg. Add a unique historical accent to your jewelry collection with this pair. Amethyst was a popular jewel among gentlewomen of the 18th century. Like much of the jewelry crafted centuries ago, these earrings will stand the test of time.
Precious and semiprecious stones—diamonds, rubies, emeralds, topaz, and garnet—were as highly prized in the colonial period as they are today, as were gold and silver. Yet some of the most attractive items were what we would call costume jewelry and were valued entirely for their aesthetic appeal.
