Antique Banded Agate Earrings, Unusual Shape 15k Gold

I was quite taken with the funky shapes of these wonderful banded agate earrings. Popular during the mourning of Queen Victoria for their black color, banded agates are most commonly seen as a simple round bead shape. These are just lovely! 

Set with 15 karat gold (tested, not marked) wires and caps, the long bottoms have great movement and pizzaz! They weigh 6.7 grams together, and they hang about 1 1/2 inches from the ear. It's getting tougher and tougher for me to find original banded agate earrings and not just a couple of beads from an old strand hung together, so I was really thrilled to find these. They are in very nice antique condition, they were doubtlessly made in England around 1870-1880. Gorgeous!
