Onyx, Marcasite & Sterling Pendant Earrings

These vintage onyx earrings are long and elegant. They each feature a collet-set, square onyx glass stone with an oval black Bakelite hoop, connected with sterling silver embellished with marcasite. The original screw-backs were replaced with 14kt gold studs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. A gorgeous Art Deco design from the 1920s, when long earrings reigned supreme and movement in clothing and jewels was key. These earrings were part of my personal collection and are guaranteed to get you noticed! Scroll down to see a selection of perfect bracelets to wear with these jewels.
