Have a tape measure handyI never shop for online jewelry without one! Oval, Beveled Edge Onyx or French Jet with a center décor of Gold & Genuine Pearls (2mm each); Gold Bead Accents on the sides & bottom.
Period Kidney Wires with Hook Catches. The last photo (for reference only) is from an 1885 catalog depicting Onyx Mourning jewelry. The bottom center earrings are similar to the ones offered here.
Mourning lasted 2.5-3 years! During Stages 1 & 2, most pieces were constructed of one or more of the following materials: Jet (fossilized black wood from ancient tree variety), Whitby Jet (fossilized coal), French Jet (black glass), Bog Oak, Gutta Percha (resin and petroleum), Vulcanite (hardened black rubber), Black Onyx Gemstone, Human Hair (often woven or curled), & Black Enamel over Metal. In Stage 3 Mourning, the last 6 months, one could wear shades of purple and other types of jewelry, including Coral, and could make public appearances.
So glad that business is over! They do need to be polished & cleaned as the centers are dirty which I didnt really notice till I began editing I had a soft cloth handy and wiped a small area and it came clean. To further clean, Id use a cotton swab dipped in barely soapy water (squeeze excess water out), rinse with a clean swab, & then dab well and air dry. 1/2 L & W, 3/16 depth, 2.6g.
