Product Details

Beautiful antique Victorian mourning earrings, made from gutta percha, featuring a dangling engraved hoop with a genuine pearl swaying from the center. The hoop is suspended from a jet bead and an articulated horse shoe element. While these pierced earrings were for mourning almost 150 years ago, they are a beautiful accessory for today's wardrobe and the sentimentalist at heart.

Gutta percha is derived from tropical trees indigenous to Southeast Asia. The sap from the trees formed a latex which allowed the Victorians to create jewelry, furniture as well as dentistry. Blocks of gray, black and brown were used by the artists to create the pieces.

Materials: Gutta percha, French Jet
Gemstone: Pearl
Measurements: 1.75 inches long and 5/8 inch wide
Weight: 3 grams together - very light on the ears
Hallmarks: NA
Date: Circa 1860s - Civil War era
Condition: Very good with the pearls having a creamy luster. The gutta percha shows normal wear without any chips or nicks. A most unique set of antique earrings!
