Product Details

Exquisite antique gutta percha Victorian mourning earrings with a dangling horse shoe and clusters of black French jet beads. The jet forms the nails that a farrier would drive in to hold the shoe in place. Most likely worn as a memento for an accomplished equestrian. The horse shoe dangles from two rings at the top and a shepherds hook wire. While these pierced earrings were for mourning almost 150 years ago, they are a beautiful accessory for today's wardrobe and the equestrian 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
  • Measurements: 2 inches long and 7/8 inch wide at the horse shoe
  • Weight: 1.6 grams - very light on the ears
  • Hallmarks: NA
  • Date: Circa 1860s - Civil War era
  • Condition: Very good with all the beads present and secure. The gutta percha shows normal wear without any chips or nicks. A most unique set of antique earrings!
