Materials

Amethyst: Transparent and relatively hard. Type of quartz. Iron gives amethyst its purple color. The deeper colors of purple are more valuable.

14k Gold: Gold has a warm glow that cannot be matched by any other metal, which is one reason it has been so highly prized for thousands of years. Pure gold (24k) is too soft to use for jewelry so other metals such as copper and zinc are added. The color of a gold alloy can vary slightly depending on the proportion of metals added. More copper will produce a slightly redder tone, for example. The tones of the 14k gold components in these earrings are carefully matched.

How to Care for Your Amethyst & Gold Earrings

It is unlikely these 14k gold earrings will tarnish so they may never need much cleaning. To keep the gold scratch free, wrap your earrings in jewelers' anti-tarnish tissue so they don't rub against other items in your jewelry box. The tissue will also help protect against tarnish forming. If the gold does start to darken, wipe gently with a damp cloth or a polishing cloth. Let the jewelry air dry thoroughly before putting away.
