Flight of the Purple Condor
These sexy Silver and Amethyst Quartz earrings may encourage a few stylish flights of fancy of your own. Watch out, fierceness ahead!
Handmade, Mexican silver swoops play host to extra-large, hand-selected gems that look like the purple-dipped feathers of some fantastic mythical bird. Slim lines of curved Sterling Silver add to the feathered effect, creating a pair of truly unusual earrings.
Not only is the design unique, but the gemstones are special too. They're known as Chevron or Banded Amethyst, a naturally occurring composite of Crystal Quartz and Amethyst. While I have other examples of the stone in my collection, none are as well balanced in their shape or as striking in appearance.
