Dating to 1880, these sophisticated late Victorian earrings feature faceted onyx pendants suspended from gold ear wires. These earrings were most likely made to compliment a bereaved woman's mourning attire. The wearing of color may have been a no-no in the early stages of mourning, but accessories were a must in the Victorian period, no matter the tragedy.
14k gold (tests), onyx
5/8" length measured from the top of the ear wire
