Briolette stones are found in antique jewellery from the Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco eras. Briolettes are one of the earliest cuts. Around 1476 Lodewyk van Berquem, a Flemish polisher of Bruges, introduced absolute symmetry in the design of facets. He cut stones in the shape known as pendeloque or briolette. These earrings have briolette cut amethysts with rose cut mounts and an old mine cut diamond above each one. They were made circa 1900-1910 and are as wearable now as they were then
