18CT WHITE GOLD GREEN AMETHYST AND DIAMOND STUD EARRINGS
Particularly lovely, these earrings are sure to spark interest due to the unusual colour and wonderful cushion shaped brilliant cut of the gemstones. .03cts of Diamond and 1.57cts of Amethyst.
Most Green Amethyst has been available since the mid 1950s, has come from Brazil and is heat treated and irradiated to produce an electrifying transparent olive-coloured green gemstone. There can be a degree of snobbery about heat-treated stones; this is fallacious, as almost 85% of gemstones will have been treated at some point.
Earrings measure 9mm high by 6mm wide. A matching pendant is available to order.
All gemstones can be damaged through wear and tear. Make sure you check for loose stones or damaged claws periodically. Always take your jewellery off whenever you are doing activities that might cause damage. Remember that household cleaners and chlorine in swimming pools can damage many gems.
Jewellery is best stored individually in a soft pouch or a box with compartments away from sunlight and where harder gemstones can’t scratch softer ones.
Don’t forget that Diamonds can scratch any other gems or metalwork.
Different gemstones need different care – remember that many jewellery cleaning products can harm softer, porous or organic gems. If in doubt, a soft moist cloth is suitable for cleaning any gem.
