Onyx and Black Enamel Pendant Earrings
Composed of onyx, enamel and 14K gold, these antique pendant earrings were created around 1870. Each is designed as an onyx bar suspending a cascade of flexibly-set sphere, black enamel oval element and three tapering onyx drops with shaped enamel caps, accented by applied beads. Freely moving and magically lightweight, these fabulous antique earrings are delightfully intricate and beautiful.
