Amethyst Safia Earrings....if you're a little partial to traditional Persian designs, then these are the earrings for you. Based on the protective amulet design of the arrowhead, this striking design has been embellished with deep violet Amethyst teardrops and given an antiqued, oxidised finish. Dreaming of days gone by, re-creating a little old-world charm....
Amethyst has a rich history, filled with folklore and intrigue. Favoured by monarchs and the clergy due to the belief of its anti-intoxication properties, it has been used as amulets for soldiers, carved into wine goblets for Kings and set into the episcopal rings of Bishops and Popes. Its regal colour is caused by minute traces of iron in pure, natural Quartz.
Our Jewellery is more than just an accessory, we want you to keep enjoying your Kalapriya pieces for years to come. To maintain your jewellery please keep in mind that Sterling Silver is a soft metal which will naturally oxidise and mellow over time. We recommend keeping your jewellery wrapped in our acid free tissue paper in a dry, cool environment. Always apply perfume and lotions well before putting on your jewellery and removing it before swimming and showering.
A silver cloth is preferred for cleaning as some of the chemical dips can damage the stones and strip the silver of its beautiful lustre.
