Rated 5 out of 5 by Poodlebear Beautiful and the color!!!
Had these on my wish list a long time and husband finally gave them to me for my birthday. I can not stress enough how fine the craftsmanship is on these earrings. The carved faces are sublime, the silverwork amazing, but what really floored me was the color of the amethyst at the top. The photo here does NOT do it justice. Deep deep grapey purple, flawless, probably the finest quality in my collection and I have a LOT of amethyst. Bigger than I expected too.
Small downsides but not enough for me to knock off a star, they are a little heavy and the wire is reeeeally long. The earring itself probably hangs an inch below my ear. This could be easily fixed just by bending the wire, the wires are substantial but silver is soft, but I ended up liking the look.
Oh, another nice surprise, they came in a beautiful cloth covered padded box. I think this is my first NOVICA piece so maybe that's the norm, but really pretty.
