Antique Victorian Fuschia Flower Earrings in Jet and Gun Metal

‘She’s SO cool.’

You hear the whispers when you walk by. It’s just a pair of earrings, you think.

But then you pass them, grinning, because you know they’re not JUST a pair of earrings.

They’re those chic, funky, but somehow timeless earrings that everybody wants. And they’re in your ears. And they look so cool.

These artsy antique gun metal and jet tassel style earrings were handcrafted in England around 1870. These mourning earrings are made from jet carved in the shape of a fuchsia flower, which was newly introduced to England hardly 80 years earlier and was still considered exotic.  Hanging from each flower are filaments made from beads of gun metal, they give these earrings fabulous swing. Overall, they measure 74.3 mm long and 13.4 mm across at the widest point, together they weigh 8.4 grams. They are unmarked. 

These earrings are the epitome of snazzy and belong dangling from your ears.
