15K Etruscan Revival Amethyst Earrings
Etruscan Revival jewelry reflects the fascination of Victorian-era women with the Etruscans – an ancient people who lived on the west coast of Italy between 700-300 BC. The discovery of Etruscan tombs in the 19th century inspired many Etruscan Revival jewelry collections in yellow gold with gemstone cabochons.
A perfect example, this elegant pair of amethyst drop earrings have been crafted in 15k solid yellow gold. If you look closely, you notice the gorgeously designed ornate boule details that add to the Etruscan look in this pair.
