Banded Onyx & Pearl Drop Victorian Earrings

Sold

ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

These are fabulous earrings. They are in great condition and beautifully set with matched banded onyx. They were made circa 1870 when banded onyx pieces were very much in fashion. The death of Prince Albert in 1861 meant that every one pretty well went in to mourning, so black jewellery was the norm. These would have been part of a large set or “parure” which would have comprised of a brooch, and, or locket and chain and a bracelet, or pair of bracelets. They are very wearable today as they are really smart.
