Super Dramatic Carved Jet Victorian Ear Pendants

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Extra long earrings, especially for the period, these beauties measure nearly 4 inches in overall length. Carved jet is lightweight and comfortable, however, these earrings have all the high style and drama of far more substantial material. Carved jet beads are a classic and a "must-have" with antique jewelry devotees and this pair would be a worthy addition to the jewel box of any enthusiast!
