Ear studs made of old amethyst violets & diamonds from our workshop

"Come, dear May, and make the trees green again, And let the little violets bloom "And let the little violets bloom. How I wish I could see To see a violet again! Oh, dear May, how I'd love To go for a walk!" The violet sung about here by Christian Adolph Overbeck has a very special place in the symbolism of flowers. It has always been a symbol of hope, loyalty and love - but also of humility and modesty. For this reason, the small flower has always been one of the most popular plant motifs and can be found in countless variations in many old poetry albums. Also in the field of jewellery the violet was a popular motif. These ear studs are a wonderful example of this: two violet blossoms cut from violet amethysts each show a sparkling little diamond in a delicate dimple setting in their centre. We have provided the violets, which came to us unmounted from the stock of a gemstone dealer, with mounting and ear nuts made of high-carat yellow gold, so that the blossoms can now be worn as stud earrings without any problems.
