Antique French Jet and Gold Night and Day Drop Earrings with Pansy Tops

Sometimes, she liked to play dress up and put on her favorite pieces – a little black dress with matching jet earrings, silver shoes and metallic eyeshadow. Sometimes, she’d play a little vinyl and pour a little wine. Sometimes, she’d dance around her living room and her kitchen singing and imagining she was somewhere important, like a ball in a Jane Austen novel, or a piano bar with studded with movie stars, or on a red carpet on her way to the Grammy’s. Someday, one of those three things would happen, but for now, she simply dreamed. 

These antique French jet Night and Day drop earrings were handcrafted around 1870. They feature beautiful French Jet, a cluster, shaped like a pansy, sits at the top and a faceted long drop makes up the bottom. These earrings measure 68 x 10.6 mm and together they weigh 9.1 grams. They have been professionally acid tested. The tops of these earrings are done in 15 karat gold and the caps on the drops are 9 karat, so it’s unlikely they started life out together, but somewhere along the way they got together and they seem to get along perfectly, what we in the biz call a happy marriage. Wear the tops alone on casual days and pop on the fabulous long drops for an evening out. Viola - from day to night! 

These earrings have a back to front closure which works just as it sounds, the earring goes through the ear from behind and clips in the front. They are extremely comfortable to wear, but it can take a little time getting used to putting them on. The key is to wiggle the earring instead of trying to just push it through. Don't be surprised if you get hooked on this style of closure once you get used to it! 

These earrings are for the dreamers, the go-getters, and the beautiful – these earrings are for you.
