Description

A very rare and unusual pair of Victorian onyx and diamond earrings. During Victorian times, jewelry was not just valued for its beauty and craftsmanship but also for the message that it conveyed. The wonderfully detailed butterfly, complete with tiny diamonds on the antennae, symbolizes life and the spirit, while the serpent with it’s tail in it’s mouth, sometimes referred to as ourobouros, symbolizes Eternity. England, ca. 1840.
