Antique onyx and diamond earrings made in the 1870’s

These earrings were made in the Victorian period of the 1870’s in 18 carat yellow gold. Each earring is set with a European cut diamond and naturally banded onyx. Coming from the crypto-crystalline quartz family with other material such as agate, chalcedony and chrysoprase, onyx occurs naturally as dense black with a white “streak” running through the stone. Often this white band is either cut away and not used, or the onyx is dyed a complete black, however when the white is used in a carving, it highlights the beauty of the stone resulting in some wonderful designs.
