This is the oldest and most beautiful set of Victorian earrings that i have ever seen in my life! This beautiful set of earrings is truly remarkable! This set of earrings features Black Jet Glass as the inlaid stone forming the cross motif to the earrings. The earrings are called Mourning jewelry because they were worn back in the day when a special someone or loved one passed on, exactly like the name sounds. Fixated at the center of the cross is also a handmade yellow gold floral motif with a seed pearl at the center. The beautiful gold work is completely hand crafted and made out of beautiful Rose Gold, very popular during the Victorian Era. Based on the metal content in these earrings we can date these earrings to about 1850-1860. Very rare to find pierced earrings of this age, they never pop up for sale! The beautiful gold is high karat 10k Solid RoseGold, not filled or plated, this is the real deal. The amount of money this set of earrings cost in the 1800's still would seem like quite a bit to us, truly a very rare and special set of earrings. Again i cannot stress how rare it is to not only find gold jewelry this old, but a matching set of earrings to boot! This beautiful set would of been custom made for a very rich and wealthy lady of the day upon custom order to her specifications of the style during this period. These are one of kind, that being said you will never see another set like these again, they are the only one's of their kind! Truly a museum quality heirloom quality set of earrings. Please don't miss your chance to own a piece of history!
Victorian jewelry is some of the rarest jewelry to find and some of the most sought after jewelry! You see, most people during the late 1800's could not afford to purchase precious metal jewelry such as this. That being the case it was almost always custom ordered by a rich and wealthy family and hand made. Because of the selective amounts made during this time, not much has survived the years of being broken, melted, and just simply lost with time. This is a true rarity!
Markings:The earrings are not stamped as to karat, they were custom made. However as stated below they HAVE been tested and GUARANTEED to be 10k GOLD!! Please read below as how we test all of our items in a non-harmful way with our XRF-Spectrometer gun.

About Us:We are two young professionals "Alexis" & "Chris". We met in a photography class in college. We both go to college and sell New, Vintage, & Antique jewelry on as a full time job. We are not your typical college aged kids, we know the value of a dollar and what customer service truly means, we will always go out of our way to make our customers as happy as possible. We started out in the jewelry business knowing individuals who were in the smelting business. As we watched these smelters melting new, vintage, & antique 100+ year old jewelry for the metal value, we cringed!! We thought, there must be a way to save this special and once in a lifetime type of jewelry instead of melting these wonderful items.Well then the bright idea of selling these beautiful items smacked us in the face!We started buying small items such as rings, bracelets and necklaces from these smelters and selling these items to wonderful people who would appreciate them and cherish them for a lifetime!
After starting out small time, we started to go to Antique shops, estate sales, estate buy outs, smelters, sales, coin shows, or just about anywhere possible we could get our hands on these wonderful and beautiful jewelry items! We started to set up at trade shows and other events to sell to people, we love the interaction with people! To work more with our school schedule we eventually phased out the trade show atmosphere and started selling jewelry on ! I'm glad we did, you can get just as much interaction with people over the internet as you can face to face. We love all of our customers and love the quick messages anybody likes to send our way! After starting to sell jewelry on we started our business called Aumia Gold & Silver Jewelry And Collectibles LLC, "Aumia" Is Golden Lady in Latin. We try to offer a variety of jewelry from Rings, Necklaces, Pendants, Brooch's, Gold & Silver. We also offer Native American Jewelry, Art Deco Jewelry, Victorian Jewelry, Antique Chinese Jewelry and much much more! We try to post a mix of each variety every day Mon-Fri.
We found our niche! The success on has made this into our full time job. Because of our great loyal customers and new ones every day you are helping us provide an education in Genetics, Biology and soon to be business. We also donate large amounts of money to Rotary. We both heavily believe in helping others and creating wonderful new opportunities internationally and domestically. Aumia has provided us our future and love towards our passion. We can’t see ourselves doing anything else. It is something new every day. I combine my hobby of photography, and meeting new people. We treat people with theutmostrespect and customer service is our main priority. There are always goofy stories about us but too much for an listing. We hope we have given you some insight to who we are and our passion for this industry. Check our page for more fun information!
