Victorian Jet Dangle Earrings
ABOUT THESE EARRINGS
Those Victorians were proto-Goth hipsters! As can readily be attested by these über-cool 'jet black' ear drops artfully hand carved in ... wait for it ... jet! (originally wood, then coal, now jet). Like most of the best examples (and these are among the best we've seen), they most likely hail from mid-19th century Great Britain. Measuring 2 1/2 inches, they drop a bit further from the ear wires. Condition note: there is a slight crack in the jet that has been repaired with epoxy.
