You would think there were lights inside these beautiful Briolette cut Amethysts the way the light reflects and shines from them. The fascinating pale purple gems hang simply from the 9 carat Yellow Gold settings to make these a pair of Drop Earrings to impress.
* The Briolette cut does not concentrate brilliance like a modern round brilliant cut gem, but the style definitely has its own charm. Applied to a pear or drop-shaped gemstone it has the entire surface covered with long triangular facets - displaying colour and reflecting light from any angle, they have a quiet, refined elegance. Briolette works especially well for Earrings and Pendants because they dangle and move, allowing them to catch the light. Generally simply presented with the setting at the top, it allows more of the gemstone to be visible than with any other cut. Back in the 17th century the Briolette was the favourite of Royalty and Aristocrats.
