Story

The Victorian era was awash with jewelry featuring an array of black materials such as jet, gutta percha, vulcanite and glass. Black onyx certainly fit that bill and lent itself to being carved and faceted in a variety of shapes and configurations.

Quite modern looking, a crown motif of carved onyx serves as surmount to an articulated orb of faceted onyx. The two elements are connected using an “O” ring and small sphere of 14k yellow gold. Simple, striking and a most effective futuristic look.
