Rare Antique 18K Gold Gutta Percha Victorian Mourning Hoop Earrings
This product is unavailable
Rare antique 18K Gold wrapped Gutta Percha Victorian hoop earrings. These rare earrings are quite unusual in that they are made in the shape of a hoop. Gutta percha is a type of tree sap that has a dark yet semi-sheer resin-like quality. It was a material frequently used in Victorian mourning jewelry. Victorians were very interested in dedicating their dress to the loss of loved ones, and I am sure these rare earrings have a story all of their own.
Very modern, these elegant 18K Gold hoop earrings are completely hand-crafted. From the beautiful hand hammered ear lock, to the hand wrapped gutta percha - these earrings are delicate and so wearable.
Size: Each earring measures 1.5" wide
Condition: Excellent. Earring hooks in working order.
