Victorian Futuristic Onyx Earrings
Victorian ladies from the later part of the 1800s bordered on the notorious for suspending from their ears everything from bowls of fish to birds complete with nests. Innovation and fashion have never been confined to the ordinary and whether unwittingly or knowingly, there are occasions when jewelers truly have a grasp on what the future of design has to offer.
That statement is apparent in black and this case, 14k yellow gold. Black onyx, so favored throughout the Victorian period, onyx has been carved into solid and chunky cubes with the forward look of the 1960s and beyond. The six-sided polygon or hexahedron, polished to a matte glow has been finished with cleverly designed 14k yellow gold ear fittings with an industrial look well suited to the earring.
