Circa 1890's, a nicely preserved matching set of flashy faceted 'French' Jet earrings and brooch (which could perhaps be worn as a necklace as it has two loops to the back by which a chain could be attached. Of hand faceted black glass, it would have involved hours of work to create each piece which would likely have formed part of a matching suite of immensely fashionable Jet jewels. Pieces such as this are a scarce find nowadays as so often they have broken over the years since they were made. The earrings measure just over an inch across and 1.5 inches from the top of the wires. The brooch measures two inches across.
