ASK A QUESTION PURCHASE

An unusual pair of Antique mid-Victorian earrings dating Circa 1860. The earrings are hand carved from Whitby Jet and feature a detailed side portrait of an elegant lady with flowers in her hair.

Whitby Jet is a type of brown coal, a fossilised wood from an ancient tree. It was brought to the attention of the world by Queen Victoria who used Whitby Jet as part of her mourning attire.

The earrings are very unique with a fancy coiling design around the edge of the cameo. They are steeped in Victorian history and hang beautifully from their original metal hook wires.
