Amethyst Earrings (also available with Moonstone) .925 Sterling Silver
These dangly earrings are made in Sterling Silver and Amethyst gemstone.
Stones and spirals illustrates a play into simple form and colours. Smooth white spirals of silver embellish the beauty of the gem stone.
Its colour is as unique as it is seductive, an extravagance in violet! The most striking and flamboyant jewel in the quartz family. Not only beautiful, Amethyst has also enchanted both the esoteric world and the scientific world for generations. The stone is known to have a sobering and cleansing effects while in Korea it has long been used as a healing stone, a tranquilizer and a detoxicant. Scientifically this stone poses a riddle that until today has not been completely solved. Amethyst has its hardness at 7 on the mohs scale, its moderate refraction and its weight is in common with the other quartzes of the family, but the crystal structure is completely different, and it is most unconventional. The construction is stratified, as a result of which areas and lamellae of varying colour intensity often come about. This explains why there are relatively few large cut amethysts of an evenly distributed dark colour.
Each and every piece of jewellery is exclusively made high up in the alps in my South Austrian studio. Natural gemstones are selected and eco/recycled gold or silver is used in creating your piece.
There is more than enough precious metal above the ground (already mined) to satisfy the jewellery industry for the next 50 years. Much of it sits in bank vaults and in the form of old and unused jewelry. Time to re-use and recycle!
Our Silver is recycled from scrap jewellery here in Austria.
Recycling Silver does not effect the quality of the metal! Impurities are burned off and the metal is again pure and ready to be alloyed. The finished piece is stamped .925 according with European Hallmark laws.
