These exquisite Victorian earrings are meticulously crafted from genuine Whitby jet, dating back to the 1860s. Measuring 2.5 inches in length, each earring features a sturdy bale and a delicately carved floral snowdrop design. Unlike glass imitations, these earrings are made from authentic jet and are lightweight for comfortable wear. Originally worn for mourning purposes, these earrings now serve as a stunning addition to any modern wardrobe.

Whitby Jet was brought to the attention of the world by Queen Victorian who used Whitby Jet as part of her mourning attire.
Jet is a type of lignite, a precursor to coal, and is a gemstone. It has an organic origin, being derived from decaying wood under extreme pressure. Whitby Jet is the fossilized wood from species similar to the extant Chile pine or Monkey Puzzle tree Today Whitby Jet is highly collectable and sought after world wide.
