The stars of this show are a pair of teardrop shaped smooth, sleek, black jet dangling from a silver flower-like setting. Together, these earrings weigh 10.0 grams. Each earring measures 55 x 10.5 mm and together they weigh 10 grams. There are no marks and they have been acid tested.

Jet, a dark brown - black coal formed from fossilized wood from the Jurassic Period, has been used for thousands of years to craft all types of jewelry as well as personal objects. The blackness of its color made it popular for mourning jewelry during the Victorian era.
