Description : Long, dangling earrings or ear pendants. Upper section in the form of a flower with 5 petals. Each petal set with a tear-shaped amethyst gem. Fine cannetille wire work of filigree and granulation surrounds the petals. Loops connect the flower surmounts to elongated foliate drops. Coils and pyramids of gold filigree wirework with a central, elongate leav, surrounded by further cannetille and ending in a small flower centered by a square/cushion shaped emerald of wonderful bright green. Golden globules of various sizes add further details. Strong colors and contrast between bright gold, royal purple and superb shade of green add to interest and attraction and hint further at the garden or botanical theme.  <P><P>
