I trade in small silver, jewellery and objets d'art. I sell primarily at antiques fairs and in cabinets in Christique Antique Centre in Dorking. I try to find unusual and interesting stock and like to keep turning it over, so I can buy more. Postage and packing are free within the UK - unless explicitly stated otherwise. All fine jewellery will be supplied with a box. If the box/case is described in the text, it will be the one photographed, but may not be if it is not mentioned explicitly. I keep hardly any stock at home, if you want to buy something and need it urgently, I will usually do it the next day, but it may take me some time to respond if you need extra photographs and/or details about the piece that I do not have to hand, as I typically visit the antiques centre just once a week. If you don't see what you're looking for - feel free to send an enquiry via the site. I have only been able to list a portion of my stock.

Description
Pair of Victorian Whitby jet earrings - ca 1860-1890. The oval drops are finely carved with floral decoration, suspended from an articulated circular jet bale on unmarked gold French wires. Whitby Jet is a semi precious organic gemstone formed over millions of years from the fossilised remains of trees. Jet jewellery became popular after the death of Prince albert in 1861, when Queen Victoria wore it extensively in mourning for her husband.
