There earrings were made in the 1860's and have such a fantastic and very unique look to them that will make them always be admired and such a wonderful talking point. The earrings are made out of bog oak which is similar to Whitby Jet in that both are the result of fossilization of trees. Whereas Whitby Jet comes from the Araucaria tree primarily around the town of Whitby in the UK, bog oak comes from Ireland and is not a specific species of tree, rather it is a term that designates oak that has been buried in a peat bog. The process for the formation of both bog oak and Whitby Jet takes hundreds to thousands of years to form and is unlike any other material used in jewellery and both have a wonderful dark black colouring as well as a fantastic texture to touch. Each earring measures 44.2mm in length from the bottom to the top of the shepherd hook, by 15.1mm across and have a fabulous pierce work affect which is highlighted by a white pearl set into each one. As unique as they are beautiful, these earrings are a wonderful look at mid-Victorian jewellery that is as fashionable today as when they were made. Stock# ES9571 Circa: 1860 Sold
