When worn, these elegant Astley Clarke Fao drop earrings, with their delicate lavender hued amethysts, catch the light and seemingly dance with the grace and elegance of a butterfly. Inspired by the love and companionship between Bec Astley Clarke's grandmother, Fao, and grandfather Sir Cyril Astley Clarke, the Fao Collection is an exceptional choice of jewellery for the modern bride. Founder of Astley Clarke, Bec has long been inspired by Sir Cyril's passion for the Swallowtail butterfly and his revolutionary research into genetics. With the new Fao collection, Astley Clarke explores the intricate patterns and movements of the butterfly wings in Sir Cyril's life work, creating fluid and organic pieces. These beautiful Astley Clarke Fao drop earrings feature two large rose cut Rose de France amethysts clasped in molten pavé diamond surrounds, suspended below a pair of smaller Rose de France amenthysts set in rose gold. Each Rose de France amethyst has been hand cut and selected by Astley Clarke.
