These superb Bulgari Pyramid Amethyst Button Earrings, made in Italy in the Contemporary Era, circa 2000s, are crafted in 18K yellow and white gold with a high-polished finish. Framing the stone is a geometric floral cutout, or Islamic stylized quatrefoil, a signature detail of the Pyramid collection no longer in production. The apex of the pyramid is centered with a sugarloaf amethyst. The earrings are clip back but can be changed to a post option for pierced ears.
The sugarloaf amethyst casts a gorgeous purple glow. The sugarloaf amethyst refers to shape rather than location. Sugarloaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro, which rises dramatically out of the Atlantic like a monument is named for its shape as well, referring to its resemblance to the traditional shape of concentrated refined loaf sugar in Brazil. The amethyst is a cabochon-cut in a pleasingly rounded pyramid shape with delicate creases at the four corners. Unusually cut stones have been the centerpieces of Bulgari design, and this example is a beautiful stone to study.
These earrings illustrate the Bulgari signature aesthetic of exquisitely balanced volumes and unmistakable motifs that pay homage to the Italian school of jewelry design which they created. Pushing the creative boundaries of surface pattern, the jewelry house used the technique known as “marriage of metals” which is an inlay process of two or more different types of metals at extremely high temperatures. Here the quatrefoil pattern is recapitulated in contrasting 18K white gold yet divided into four shapes in the corners like a kaleidoscope. The simplicity that is most complex to achieve is breathtaking.
Clip-on style. Signed Bulgari. Come in the original box. Measurements: 0.98 x 0.98 ins (2.5 cm x 2.5 cm).
