These earrings are made with top grade bright purple “gel” sugilite. Sugilite is a relatively new gemstone found only in South Africa and is no longer commercially available.
They are constructed of solid 18k gold with a twisted wire design that is well crafted. Each earring is approximately 3/8” wide and 1/2″ tall (to the top of the ring that attaches to the ear wire).
