Below are dangling earrings with faceted gemstones, in this case pink chalcedony and garnet, bezel set in sterling silver. The earrings hang from some of my favorite marquise shaped sterling earwires..
Below, a necklace made entirely of dark blue faceted chalcedony briolettes strung so closely together that they have a ruffled look. 14 karat gold-filled chain makes up the very back of the necklace so that the gemstones won't get caught in one's hair.
Amethyst is the birthstone for the month of February although I have found that lovers of amethyst pay no attention to whether they were born in February! The gemstone is a perennial favorite and diehard amethyst lovers cannot have too much amethyst jewelry. The amethyst necklace, left, is a favorite of mine, mainly because of the amethyst gemstones which are faceted as though they were meant to be mounted in a ring. They are also AAA quality, so they sparkle beautifully! The amethyst necklace has a simple S clasp in sterling silver and tiny sterling silver beads separating the amethysts.
Below the necklace are more gem quality amethyst, this time in a faceted briolette that hang from sterling silver earwires.
The amethyst earrings above are simple but elegant.
My favorite amethyst piece is the bracelet below that is created using roughly faceted flat amethyst nuggets that are translucent with 14 karat gold-filled accents and toggle clasp. The amethyst bracelet is large, but because the nuggets are flat, they do not get in the way of daily tasks making it easy to wear.
Yes, I am wishing for more snow!
