Amethyst and Sterling Silver Fuschia Flower Earrings Taxco Mexico

Vintage Pierced earrings made in Taxco, Mexico. The design reminds me of fuschia flowers. The flowers were formed with the repoussé technique and they are 3 dimensional. The drops are genuine amethyst . (one is longer than the other) The stones rest in sterling caps and dangle. There is some visible clear glue at the tops of the stones if you look closely.

They are 1 1/4" wide and 2 1/4 long with the ear wires. It once had screw backs which is where they would have been hallmarked .They came to me with no earring attached so I added the nice quality ear wires. Not marked sterling, but all metal is sterling silver. Weight: 11.6 grams.
