Fabulous Art Deco Jet Double Circle Earrings in Silver, c. 1920

     When Henry Ford first introduced his assembly line created auto mobile, he was famously quoted as saying that one could have the car in "any color you like, as long as it's black."

     Many precious things acquire an extra cachet of mystery and worth when they are black.  Black coral is highly sought after, a black opal a rarity, and who can deny the sumptuous beauty of a black pearl.  In a world of minerals and gemstones that offer a myriad of color there is a notable dearth of black apart from the ubiquitous onyx.  Then there is Jet, a mineral that dates to prehistoric use, it has a light and airy weight and feel and is surely an embodiment of classical chic, a simple sophistication that is timeless and classic, rather like Coco Chanel's 'little black dress.'

     When I came across these timeless Art Deco black hoop jet earrings, I knew that I had to have them!  Fantastically handcrafted, the hoops are faceted and polished for that extra bit of shine and sparkle. Each earring measures 5 cm from top of hook to the bottom. The larger circle is 25.5 mm in diameter. Together they weigh 2.5 grams.

     Jet is a somewhat fragile material and a little extra care should be taken to preserve these beauties in the excellent condition that they are in. We'll send them out to you in a lovely velvet-lined box, I would recommend you store them in this box when not in use (which isn't likely to be too often!).  

     I offer layaway on most items purchased for full retail price. In general my layaway terms are 1/3 down and 1/3 in 30 days and the last 1/3 in 60 days. I am flexible so if you are interested please ask me and we can work out a payment plan that suits you. Items ship when payment is complete and items purchased or payments made on layaway are eligible for store credit only.

      I always want you to be happy with every aspect of your purchase in my shop. If you are not completely satisfied for any reason simply let me know and we'll work together to get the item returned for a full refund. I guarantee that my pictures and descriptions are as accurate as possible. My goal is to exceed your best expectations!
