ANTIQUE BLACK JET? ONYX? MOURNING DANGLE EARRINGS
- Source: eBay
This is a pair of antique Victorian black jet or onyx dangling earrings. They are pretty old as they have the fish hook wires. They are not marked for gold content and the tops have a lot of dents. They hand about 1 5/8" front the top with the black part being 7/8" plus the gold bead and are about 7/16" at the widest. Each side is beveled or made smooth with a curve. Condition is used because there are a lot of tiny chips and a couple larger. Also one bead seems to have been replaced because you can see the hole so it was probably a bead. Still a great pair of very old mourning earrings and you can adjust them a little for the best sides in front. With there swinging when worn you can't noticed the chips that well. Please look at the pictures carefully with the mouse for conditions and ask questions. Thank you for viewing. U.S. SALES ONLY.
