Description

Hand-carved Whitby Jet spheres measuring 5/16" across and daggers 1.75" long with inlaid black diamonds hanging on solid 18K gold, 2.25" from earring post to tip.

Jet is a 180 million-year-old fossilized wood, primarily associated with the Victorian mourning jewelry popularized by Queen Victoria at the turn of the century. Considered a gemstone, Jet has been used in jewelry making as far back as 10,000 BC but is quite rare today, with Jacqueline being one of only a few designers working with it to create art. Being hand carved, each piece varies from one to the other and is therefore unique.
