Victorian Carved Whitby Jet Drop Earrings Circa 1880

A simply gorgeous pair of Victorian carved Whitby jet drop pendeloque earrings.

Stunningly hand carved in around 1880, very finely detailed throughout, the very bottom of the drop is carved in the pattern of an opening rosebud, quite beautiful.
Of such a lovely shape very much in the style of an elongated tear drop, with a cap of (we believe rolled gold) but with stamped and tested 9ct yellow gold ear wires.
Quite the statement when worn, these earrings measure 6cm from the top of the ear wires and 1cm width at the widest point at the bottom.
