Jet is a fascinating material. It's essentially wood that's compressed and fossilized under intense pressure over the course of millions of years. Popularized by Queen Victoria in the mid 1800s as part of her mourning dress, its use reached its apex in the early 1870s.

These dramatic geometric earrings measure 3.1" in length and have three jet spikes crowned by a carved oval piece. Each of the individual parts are joined together with 14K yellow gold jump rings and the earrings fasten to the ears securely with a closed loop ear wire.

Shipping calculated at checkout.

All fine jewelry products include free shipping within the United States and a 3-day "try-on" period. If at the end of three days you decide to return the item, just let us know! You can return for either an exchange or a refund — your choice. Read our Return Policy.

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your jewelry will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. 

We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one!
