About Baguette Cut

In French, baguette means "rod". It also refers to a long loaf of crusty bread.

In the jewelry realm, however, the baguette signifies classic, regal beauty. Elongated in length, this cut features non-beveled corners and usually two rows of facets. Similar to the emerald cut, the baguette lacks the sparkle of a brilliant cut. Yet, its few number of facets result in rich color and clarity. On a symbolic note, the baguette speaks to great intelligence, protection, and divine contemplation.

About Amethyst
Amethyst

Stone Information & Mining

Amethyst is the purple variety of the quartz mineral species. It's the gem that's most commonly associated with the color purple, even though there are other purple gemstones such as sapphire and tanzanite. Its purple color can be cool and bluish, or a reddish purple that's sometimes referred to as "raspberry."

Legend & Lore

Because of its wine-like color, early Greek legends associated amethyst with Bacchus, the god of wine. Other legends reflected beliefs that amethyst kept its wearer clear-headed and quick-witted in battle and in business affairs. Fine amethysts have been set in religious jewelry and royal crown jewels for ages. It was once considered equal in value to ruby, emerald, and sapphire. It's no wonder that fine amethyst adorns the fingers of bishops as well as the coronation regalia of British royalty.

Color

Amethyst's purple color can range from a light lilac to a deep, intense royal purple and from brownish to vivid. Amethyst also commonly shows what is called color zoning, which in the case of amethyst usually consists of angular zones of darker to lighter color.

Cleaning

Amethyst can be safely cleaned with warm soapy water. Ultrasonic cleaners are usually safe except in the rare instances where a stone is dyed or treated by fracture filling. Steam cleaning is not recommended, and amethyst should not be subjected to heat.

J263333 - Gemstone Tapered Baguette Sterling Teardrop Dangle Earrings 3.7 5 7 7
Feminine & Elegant These are just as lovely as presented. The London blue is not as deep as some but definitely deeper than swiss blue - plus anything too dark would get lost on the ear with this design - it actually matches perfectly a London blue ring I bought on Q two years ago (still get compliments on it!) These will go great with just about any outfit - now I just need a matching necklace! 04-18-12
Oops Debated for awhile before I bought these...then easy pay. One of them kept turning backwards. Then stones fell out......awe. To late to return 04-15-12
Beautiful Earrings! I just received these earrings today in amethyst. They are very beautiful and the silver is very shiny and polished. The baguettes really sparkle in the sunlight. The amethyst is not too light nor is it real dark; it's a medium color. I just received a Liz Claiborne top in purple with silver trim around the square neck -- these earrings will look beautiful and stand out well with the top. I used to buy fashion jewelry, but the silver would come off the metal. I felt like I was wasting my time and money buying fashion jewelry, so now I only buy sterling silver jewelry. The quality of silver jewelry at QVC can't be matched. Great job QVC on your quality control. These earrings can be worn during the daytime or for a night out with someone special. Love Purple! 02-18-12
Beautiful earrings I love these earrings. With long hair I need a longer earring and these are perfect. The color of the blue topaz is perfect also and the finish is smooth and shiny. 02-08-12
Not bad but not for me The stones were not of the quality I expected. I ordered the blue, and they weren't of a sufficiently deep color to show up on the ear. The silver didn't look genuine. Not bad, but not of the same high quality I'm used to with my QVC silver and gemstones. 10-16-11
Not satisfied I'm sorry but I am not satisfied with the back side of these earrings. They are unfinished looking and not attractive. I had ordered the blue topaz to give to my hair stylist for Christmas. I know for sure, since she owns the salon and is a good friend, that she would not be impressed with the back of earring anymore than I am. Very disappointing and back they go. I was generous in giving the two stars because the front of earring was nice. 10-08-11
Beautiful Earrings! I just received the London Blue Topaz earrings I purchased from the Silver Crede day and they are awesome. I've never owned LBT so I may not know what to look for, but these are nice and deep in blue color but not so deep as a sapphire. It's a keeper! 10-06-11
